The sun rose at 1104 and set at 1321. The length of the day was 2 hours and 17 minutes. Cloudy, grey, some new very wet snow. The forecast for tomorrow is about the same.
Where is the cold weather? On the other hand one really has to be careful for what to wish for and I am a bit hesitant to wish for cold weather, since I can still remember well the winter of 1999 when the temperature went down to -50°C (-58F). There were serious power failures all over Lapland but luckily we were saved. That cold front stayed for a few days and I remember sleeping downstairs and keeping the fires going almost non-stop and at the same time I was very worried of breaking the chimneys because of all that heating. I would not like to experience that kind of temperatures ever again, they were truly very scary and worrying.
Mittens - I like these both a lot. I truly like the stripes. But
1. Do I keep the arrow heads?
2. Should I keep the band but instead of knitting the arrow heads add some embroidery there?
3. Should I get rid of the band with or without the arrow heads or embroidery and do just plain striping and then embroider something on the striped background?
The thumb gussets need some tweaking there
And I am still thinking of the snow mittens.Thinking a lot but making very little progress.
Have a good weekend!
