I am going to dance with them. I am going to sing with them. I am going to be warm in them.
My mittens are finished after some turbo knitting. I love them so much. They came out just blooming and woollen for my taste.
I am very happy about using tiny needles on 1.75mm - they did the trick as I am a loose knitter most of the time.
The mittens fits me just as I wanted. I have always thought that mittens are a quick knit.
Well, there is a lot of work on mittens and I need to knit more to get it into my fingers. And onto my fingers... I admire latvian women that had to knit over 70 pairs of mittens to give away to their family in law when they married. They knitted for a hope chest and at the most it contained hundreds of pairs.

Anyway, now I know I can knit mittens without having to felt them because they get too big.
To get the duplicate stitches to cover entirely was not easy.
I could have used a thicker yarn, but I wanted those two colors for the flower and did my best.
After all I am the one wearing them. I would have been terrified if they were a gift.
Why do we always need to be so perfect? So afraid of others finding out that we are just humans?
It means good luck if there are some errors in the knitting. Well, I should soon be a millionaire with these mittens.
I am going to knit more mittens. There are so many lovely patterns out there just waiting to be knitted.
And the joy of making these will follow me into the winter. I love daisies and now I can wear them together with my favorite color turquoise.
