Winter’s first snow

It started to snow in the north today, sadly I am not there, happily I am with my parents in the south where its been raining with some refreshing gushes of strong wind. I am here only to visit friends and family I miss, my brother came to meet me to but he also lives in some distance from the city, not as far as me, yet quite far, and so we were all here, only people missing were both my and my brothers partner. But its been wonderfull to say the least 🙂

I managed to finish my niece’s mittens that I wanted to give her for her birthday, blue is her favorite color and so I knitted her blue mittens. It’s fair isle, no particular pattern, like with the other mittens my main goal was to make them as warm as possible. I used alpakka from Sandes, really soft and cozy. I hope she will like them!:)

A winter morning, hot chocolate and finished mittens

This is what it looked like when I took a peek out the window this morning, it had started to snow early yesterday evening but now its 40 cm of evenly fallen snow. And what is better than hot chocolate with whipped cream to celebrate such a beautiful Saturday morning 🙂

I finished the mittens finally, and now I can finish some of my other projects, like my boyfriend’s aran, Philippa’s jumper and some Christmas presents:)

Have happy snowy Saturday everyone! 🙂
