Snowflake Mittens

I should probably stop knitting mittens but I can't help myself.

Briggs Mittens

They were knit with pure wool from Briggs and Little, which is the first wool mill established in Canada in 1916, and is one of the few woolen mills still operating in North America.

The mill is located in New Brunswick on the east coast and boy, would I ever love to do a tour of that place!

Violet Radiate Cardigan

I knit this swing cardigan for the upcoming warmer weather.  

Free pattern and details can be found on my Ravelry account.

Altered Floral Notebook

I put together this little notebook yesterday when I needed a bit of distraction.

The hardback notebook is from the dollar store and was covered with cotton fabric which I left very wrinkled on purpose.

The flower petals were cut out of a thicker fabric which frays. I embroidered around each petal and stitched french knots on the center part.  I used regular markers to colour the stem and petals and then glued everything down with mod podge.

I printed out the little love quote on white tissue paper and then mod podged it onto the fabric.
