I just want to knit. All day long. I really got bit by the knitting bug when mom was visiting and I still have it bad. But it feels so good. The needles click away while I sit with the children who play nicely (always) in the living room or kitchen or playroom. Lilly has been tricycling around on her 3 wheeler in the living room. Sebastian brought it in one day from outside, washed it for her in the tub and presented it to her to use. They were both pleased as can be!
This is what I am knitting. Yes, the beauties on the cover! I have had this book for ages and have always wanted to knit the pair pictured here with the people holding hands. Anne Katrine inspired me to make them when I saw she has this exact pair!
The needles are size 2 mm, pretty tiny and the yarn is ditto. Just finished with the little folk dancers.
I made the moose mittens for my husband many years ago, in the right corner. They didn't fit him though even though the pattern said it was for a man. I wore them instead, but the fit wasn't great. I am sure it is going to be the same for this pair that I am making now too, but I have dreams of making a new pattern myself that will be unique and fit properly. We'll see if I get to it.
I thought you might like to see what the pattern looks like.
I have never attempted gloves before. I know I could do it but it does look fiddly. They are so beautiful though that I might have to make a pair. Now, to get knitting again...
