hugin & munin

winter arrived early this year. good luck i’ve just finished a pair of mittens!

hugin and munin are odin’s ravens

they’re actually rather big, but if it gets really cold i can wear another pair of mittens under these ones. or i’ll give them to someone with bigger hands than i have.
