I did some more knitting! The weather is beautiful outside, warm and sunny, and I have been knitting! I used some of my Japanese alpaca yarn and made some mittens, and they turned out perfect - perfect fit, really good look, nice and tightly knitted (= warm in the winter). And the colour, which I wasn´t sure about, worked really well. So, all and all - it was a really good knit!
