The socks are ready and mittens are on the way

I'm so happy the socks are ready and I have had time to start the mittens.I have had a long time a pattern by Emma Jacobsson "Randiga loppan" and I use off white and grey.I'm going to do a change with the knitting of thumbs.We get the autumn and soon we have colder times so it's good to be ready with some knitting before October when we can get cold nights and perhaps some snowy days.

The picture is taken 8.15 in the evening and we really have a lovely sunshine.

What have I done on Sunday evening and Monday afternoon?

Hello all

On there have been new projects everyday presented by different designers,small projects to do in a day or 2.I found it the last 3 days of the doing-together so the first I have done is a version of project 12.A nice project but I had to ghange colours because I had nothing to paint with and the colours were a little bit to much pink.I'm going to use the square to something but I have not decided what.

Go there and i hope you find something nice to do.
Good luck
