Winter holiday photo album

Winter holiday for me is 
mountain cottage, skiing, knitting, reading, 
playing cards and other games.
Warm and cosy in front of the oven







Most of the days were sunny and beautiful but one day was colder and windy, and my lined Lillehammer mittens warmed my hands. (Translation of the pattern to English is on my to do-list).


Remember these woolly longies? You might notice they are longere here - the pattern is wide, so they still fit the 6-years old, but he needed some more length. 
I'm working on a fun, colourful and secret project at the moment, so here's my mother's knitting. She has borrowed my book, Colorwork creations, and is making mittens. They are top-down mittens. My mother taught me to knit when I was five, now I could teach her magic cast on for top-down mittens. She's using a thicker yarn (sport weight) and has omitted one pattern repeat. 




She's also made a hat for my father. 
I love those little birds, don't you?
