Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
Picture shows me attempting to form a heart with my new mittens(!). As wiser knitters have already noted, it isn’t very easy.
There are a variety of things I have been very happy about lately, and what better day to mention them than St. Valentine’s? So without further ado, here goes:
Mittens in waffle pattern (from 60 Quick Knits), knit in Dream in Color Classy (colourway in Vino Veritas).
Virankannos Mittens (pattern free in Ulla) for the bf, knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage, colourway Grove.
Both Snurre (homepage here), and Villavyyhti (homepage here) opened last year in Helsinki. And let’s not forget older favourites, either 🙂 After not having been to yarn stores in a while, there really is nothing better.
3. Etsy: knitting bags
There are many awesome shops but Bird Leg Bags is where I recently got two knitting bags. Not only did I get them fast, wrapped nicely and with a few extras, but OMG…Owls! and kittens! My two weaknesses.
4. (Vegan) Chocolate
A local healthfood store (Ruohonjuuri) has started carrying Moo Chocolates. I am totally addicted. They use rice milk which makes the chocolate taste very similar to “regular” milk chocolate. There are other brands on the market as well but Moo is my favourite. Yummy!
