With some of my polymer clay beads, with my heart and with a hope that you´ll find your true colors in 2012, I wish you a very happy new year.
May all the birds of hope and happiness land on your roof in the new year.

In about 2 weeks there is a Knit Along (KAL) on Ravelry for these mittens designed by the norwegian knit designer Tori Seierstad. The pattern is free and a lot of knitters has tried it out, and are very pleased with both the result and the pattern.
The KAL will start Desember 26th and there are no deadline. Just take your time.
The pattern is in english, portuguese and french. To see more mittens click your way into Toris site on Ravelry. You can download the pattern from Toris blog or from Ravelry even if you´re not a member.
I´m actually planing on joining my first KAL. I´m curious of how it will work knitting along with so many knitters all over the world. I find it really amazing - maybe I will see you there?
I´ve already knitted the seahorse into a sweater and a scarf and I get a lot of comments on them. It´s time for some mittens with the seahorse on. I already have the yarn in my stash: Kauni rainbow (what else...)
What could me more wonderful than to give christmas a rest with these mittens and swim along in the big pool of knitters online?
