Knitting is great therapy. It is actually proven that your heart rate slows down while knitting. Knitting Lovikka mittens is a good size project, you can actually finish them in a couple of days. I find it difficult to decorate with stitches so I felted some snowflakes onto mine. Pretty happy with the results.
Made this for my 4 year old niece. Standar LOVIKKA pattern and just added that string that you put through the arms of the jacket that makes it impossible to lose the gloves (so useful).
Upcycled some chopsticks and paper bags today and made christmas cards. A bit early but I´m hoping to sell them at Feira Escandinava on 3-5 November at Clube de Pinheiros here in Sao Paulo. All profit go to the orphanages that the Scandinavian church support.
