Easter sweater done? and the first Latvian Mitten

My Visjö Latvian mitten. I'm ok. A bit tired, still.
All apple-trees (6 of them) are pruned. Some plants in the ground (but the bought dirt was still frozen!) The boat is uncovered, and the sprayhood on. The stress is back on again. Whatever happened to Easter? I think it went in a blink. But finally spring at least passed. Easter ending with rain!
But good food and good wine - and lots of time to knit! The problem is, I have not found this colour (the backdrop blue) yet. It is Östergötlands Ullspinneri. So on the right is my Easter sweater. Great It is in Italian yarn Lana Grossa, Pep Print. Started last easter. And has been an ufo until now.
I still have a ball, so I'm thinking, should I make it longer? The sleeves longer? Or knit a hood? or a shawl-collar? I have not decided. It might be done!!

Jättefina vantar. Färdiga lagom till våren, ;) . Men till sjöss kan de ju behövas även mitti sommaren. Vår båt är ännu täckt, isen ligger tjock i hamnen men kanske om en månad kan vi få den i vattnet?

Oh vilka fina vantar! Underbart vackra färger.

Vad har du för masktäthet? Storlek på stickor? Mitt problem är att jag stickar löst så jag får ibland gå ner till 1.5 mmm stickor för att få det att stämma, och det är besvärligt för händerna i längden.

OJ!
Vad fina dina Latvian Mittens blir. Själv är jag bara i plannerings-stadiet för mitt par...

the mitten is amazing!!! I say, forget the other one and frame it- it is so perfect, on a black velvet background!

I personally make my sweaters too short, and always add. I like them a bit longer.
