Cloud Mittens and a Sunday Lately

Hello again! How are you this Sunday?

I have yet another Christmas gift to share with you. These are the Cloud Mittens from Sari's blog LunaKnit (this is actually the first part of the pattern, the second one is here). Aren't they pretty? The first time I saw them I knew I wanted to knit a pair for my sister. 

I'm a huge fan of Sari's knit blog. The beautiful photos always leave me inspired and the projects are beautiful too.  Sari is also a fellow Finn, which makes me a little bit awesome too, right? No you say? 

The mittens are lined, so the they are really really warm. Also I would like to warn you in case you want to knit these. They look horrendous before blocking. I'm sure there would have been tears and blood on my part if Sari wouldn't have included a picture of the mittens before blocking. 

It's that time of the week again, when I link up with Sunday Lately to share my thoughts on this week's themes.

- Updating - :: Sewing and knitting plans. Planning what to make next (or maybe next year...) is one of my all-time favorite pastimes. I reorganized my yarn and updated my knitting plans and now I need to do the same with my sewing.

- Remembering - :: How to alter sewing patterns. I've had my eye on this Cardigan from Burda for ages, and now I've traced the pattern and made some fitting changes based on an RTW -favorite. I'm not sure where the pattern tweaks will lead me, but I'm trying to remember to trust my instincts.

- Needing - :: To stay motivated with everything. And I mean everything! School, sewing, knitting, blogging, exercising and so on. Maybe my Sunday is just off to a slow start and that's the reason for feeling so 'meh' about everything. Caffeine to the rescue.

- Wearing- :: A new me-made shirt! I was sure I'd hate it, but now I kind of like it. I'm planning to show it to you soon.

- Being - :: Excited by the March issue from Burda. But as I mentioned before, I need to update my sewing plans, since my current project is a wintery cardigan. Maybe it'll be time for spring/summer sewing once I'm finished with it?

Have a great week everybody! Anyone else making summer sewing plans?



  1. The mittens are absolutely gorgeous! I love the intricate knitting design. Sigh, one day I will pick up knitting as well, this is super inspirational.
