I made mittens.
BEEEAUTIFUL mittens with seahorses and braids and happy star/rose motifs.
The fabulous pattern is from Torirot Design and is free on ravelry. I made some modifications - mostly in the cuff, and a bit in the thumbs, because I liked the longer pattern, but felt they needed to be pointy. In other news, I have opinions on mitten thumbs (who knew?).
I desperately love this feeling of awe and accomplishment that knitting can give me.
And I don't even mind that it's snowing now.
