knitting: heart mittens

The holidays have come and gone. Now all we have left is the upcoming New Year's Eve and then it's back to the old routine for most of us. 

 Over time, I have noticed that this season tends to be much more stressful for most people than it should be. I, on the other hand, had the pleasure of cruising through it - for the most part - from a calm family dinner on Christmas Eve in our pj's, to getting back into my daily workouts that I used to miss so much while at school and a meetup with the lovely Maddie from the coolest blog you'll ever read, Madalynne. I've had a lovely and laid back time, just the way I like it. 

 Last month, when I knew I was going to be meeting up with Maddie I decided to put together a little package - sort of a Christmas/early birthday/meetup present. I am one of those people who truly love giving presents more than receiving and I usually don't like going somewhere empty handed. Knowing that it's really cold up where Maddie lives I decided to knit her a pair of mittens with a patterns that I came up with specifically for them. I liked the idea of working with two colors throughout the whole mitten because the yellow thread that is carried on the inside makes it that much thicker and warmer. 

 I really enjoyed making them and I'm already starting a new pair.

season's greetings

As you might already know if you have read my blog before, I am an obsessed child when it comes to the holiday season. I will not bore you with my list of every single reason why I love this time of the year, since I must have done that before at some point in the past winter-y posts.

In order to share my love and spread some holiday cheer all over the blog, here you have some on my latest photos from this holiday season - including my favorite ornaments and a super tiny tree that is almost the size of my hand. It even has tiny ornaments, of course. It is the cutest thing ever!

I wish you a happy and very joyous time with all of your loved ones.  Happy holidays
