feeling it

How did we get here? Is it really 14th of December?

At least my little boys are now so ready for Christmas. We have kept everything really simple here, mostly because we're not staying home this time. Simple wreath on the door and funny gingerbread house is enough for us (and some lights, of course!).

I just love the way our gingerbread house is decorated! I really do share similar aesthetics (and skills) as my boys...

This post is now mostly non-knitting related, but I'd like to let you know that I've set up a group for my designs on ravelry. You're all most welcome to join the group!

Sweet Vanilla Tunic

Finally I have the pattern for Sweet Vanilla ready! What a perfect light, yet warm, layer it is for this cold winter we're having.
