I had a very wintery and cozy few days this weekend. I'm really embracing this season which is a new thing for me. We visited our friends out at True North Ranch near Spring Green, Wisconsin. Truely a lovely evening with a snowy drive, delicious dinner and peppermint stick ice cream by the fire.
I worked on a few wintery projects including starting and finishing (well nearly) a pair of sweater mittens based on this tutorial. Mary Jo had a similar pair on display at the craft fair when I met her. I really liked the design so while I tried to think of other more original ideas, I remembered the wise words of Will Smith and his back-up singers: "if it ain't broke then don't...don't try to fix it." I'm not quite done with them, I still need to sew the bottom together hence the creatively cropped image. One red cross came out a little wonky and the thumbs are a little different in length, but I love them just the same. What wintery and cozy things have you done to embrace this season?
