A song of Ice and Yarn

A song of Ice and Yarn

I admit it. Winter is my favourite season. It makes for cosy indoor time (preferably spent knitting) and fabulous outdoor time! But only when it’s cold and snowy 🙂 And dark and cosy. Hm. I think I might be weird.

It has been snowing for the last few weeks and it’s preeeeeeeetty cold outside, -15degrees Celsius. I really love this. First of all because it’s pretty and different from anytime else and also because it makes for really nice pictures 🙂

So instead of boring you with stories you might not want to read I’ll let you enjoy this week’s pictures. Oh. By the way. If you are on Instagram give me shout out and follow me at @MumpitzDesign for a daily dose of pictures from my side of the world 🙂

My latest FO from one of my new favourite designers Adrée Beddoe (read interview here): Dianthus! I loved knitting this one, so many new techniques to learn, from latvian nupps to k2tog-bind-off (new to me, in any case) and it was pure joy knitting with this gradient yarn from Bilum (although the colour bled a little while knitting!). I added the contrasting flowers and boder with Mumpitz Sock Glitter (golden sunset and berry) and am very happy with the result!

And in the meantime I’m happily knitting while commuting and binge watching series in the evenings so this happened, too… I think I might have overdone it a little, don’t you think? 🙂

And now I need to fill the void after finishing a big project with an even bigger project 🙂

Happy knitting!
