Mittens and Cake

This has been a busy week with guests in town and my son’s very first birthday. But through it all, I found a little time to finish these mittens.

They are the Swedish Mittens from Halland pattern from Folk Mittens by Marcia Lewandowski. They are nice and dense and toasty warm. I also added an angora cuff lining that makes them just a little extra special.

And for the birthday boy I made my first ever successful cake! With frosting! It was a carrot cake from my friend Kim’s blog. The birthday boy was not so sure how he felt about it, I never give him sugar so it must have been a strange experience. My husband loved it so much he is insisting that he will eat it all if I don’t stop him.

  1. Haha, well at least one of the boys liked it! It looks delicious!

    Also, I am in awe of those mittens. My brain cannot process how those were made by a human and not a machine. They are just perfection.
