Pretty in pink: handmade owl mittens and a beanie

handmade knitted owl mittens by thisblogisnotforyou.comHi everyone! Yes – I’m still alive (and making handmade stuff)!

I was busy working and helping to prepare my brother’s wedding. My sewing machine is covered in dust and my to-sew-list keeps growing relentlessly. But while babysitting a few times a week I still get to knit quite a lot.
I’ve made two beanies, two pairs of mittens and a scarf so far. Working on socks and a third beanie at the moment. Enough wool to get started on a couch blanket is on its way 🙂

I haven’t had time to take pics of all the knitted makes, but here some pics of the pink mittens and beanie I made for my sister-in-law.

It’s a lace & cable pattern I made myself. Unfortunately you can’t really see it in this picture. But I’ll be making at least another beanie with this pattern and will take proper pictures then!

What have you been up to lately?
