Daisies To Keep Me Warm

I just love daisies. And I ordered the pattern for my new mittens the instant I saw it on Ravelry. But it really took time to get started. I had to knit a latvian braid - and thought it would be hard to manage. I was so wrong. I found this excellent video and that made it so easy.

The second cuff will have my name on it.
Latvian braids are so lovely on knitted mittens and it was really about time to learn it. I love how it came out.

And I can not wait to get the mittens finished. These are my second pair ever knitted.

My first pair got so big that I had to felt them several times. They are still big.

So I decided to find myself some tiny needles to avoid those huge mittens.

I finally got hold of 1.75mm needles on 15cm. They are so lovely to knit mittens with.

So, this is almost like laying down in a meadow of daisies on a warm summers day. That is what my mittens reminds me of.
