December washing line

Do you still remember me moaning on July how I haven't got enough (read: any) mittens knitted? Well it certainly have taken some time, but just take a look at today's washing line in my backyard!

The day was very, very dark and gray so the pictures are less than perfect, but I wish you can see happy snowmen and birdies still?

These mittens are already heading somewhere but I still would love to share a pair with you too! It's definitely time for a giveaway, and there will be a pair of my mittens as prize! So what I would like you to start thinking is what colored mittens you would like to have, would it be larger or smaller size and the most importantly - what would be starring you pair? A birdie? A bunny? A pig? Some flowers? A raccoon maybe? Just take your time to think, and then leave a message on today's post. I'll draw the winner on Thursday, 15th of December, and make you your dream pair! Please note, that these will probably not make to you for Christmas, but hey, what would be better than brighten up a gray January day?

Size-wise the smaller pair (like the brown ones with two birdies) are approximately from top to bottom 22cm/8.6" and the width is 11cm/4.3". The larger ones (like the happy snowmen up there) are top-bottom 25cm/9.8" and 12,5cm/4.9" wide. Both sizes fit me but I have quite large hands so the bigger size is better.

Happy choosing and wonderful second advent and 4th of December!

They are so cute Mia! I have loved all your Christmas makes recently- the stockings are so charming x I can't wear the mits-sensitive skin makes wool too itchy but what a prize, they are so beautiful

So cute! I'd choose red with birds - and large for me!

O my goodness Mia what a fab washing line. That must have made your neighbours' smile ;0) What a wonderful idea for a giveaway. After a lot of thinking I would choose as my dream pair the blue you used with the snowmen mits with a snowman on each and instead of a birdie a little pig!! That way I would have mits to match my snowman scarf but with the added bonus of sweet pigs to gaze at!!How wonderful would that be! I think I too would be large as I think my hands are pretty large too (must be all the work they do!). Thanks for such a generous giveaway and good luck to everyone! Keep warm...the trees are up here and mince pies made this afternoon.

Oh Mia....I love your pretty washing line with the sweet mittens against the snow, that is a lovely sight! And what a fabulous giveaway! I love them all really, but as I have to choose I would say a blue pair with bunnies on please, in the small size. Thank you for putting me in the draw.
Have a wonderful week.

I would have to choose gray with birdies and a toadstool (is that allowed) Size large for me. Thanks for adding me in the hat or bowl!

Ooooh mikä arvonta! Ensin meinasin vaan kommentoida ihania lapasia, ja sit tajusin muiden kommenteista tulla lukemaan koko tekstin. Mun haaveiden lapaset olis kettuaiheiset, kun sun ketut on niin ihania, mut pohja vois olla vaalea. Koko taitaa olla pienempi kahdesta.

Kiitos muuten sun kommentista mun blogiin! Tosi harmi ettet päässy moikkaamaan. Olis ollut niin kiva nähdä! Messut meni tosi hyvin ja myyntikin ylitti reippaasti odotukset. Jee! :)

Teje said...

Thank you Mia, I'm here ...
If I would be the lucky one to win, I would love to have something blue with birds, because it would be so much 'You' and also my favourite Finnish colour!

The mittens are really lovely. My dream pair would be purple with birdies in a large size - just the job to keep my hands warm whilst walking my dog!

Annie said...

Oh, how delightful! My dream pair would be grey-blue or brown with little birds. I'm a tall, chunky girl but I have tiny hands, and they get very cold in winter. Such a generous giveaway :D

Wowsers I would love a green pair with daisy/buttercup flowers in a small size - Leah x

Beth said...

They are beautiful and I'd love to be in with a chance of winning a pair. I am a red girl, so that would be my choice and your adorable snowmen coasters have just re-appeared in our house and always make me smile so snowmen would be my choice. Beth/The Linen Catx

What a wonderful and generous idea, Mia♥!
I'd love to win large light blue mittens with a cloud, raindrops and a tiny bird in a puddle. They'd certainly match my beloved light blue bike perfectly.

Liebe Grüße, Maike

Christine said...

Oh you are so awesome Mia! I'd get a pair with birdies or owls, you know how I love owls! Happy holidays!

I am now closing the comments, thank you so much everyone and good luck!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
