according to smhi (swedish meteorological and hydrological institute) autumn normally arrives in the stockholm area on october first (the meteorological definition of autumn is when the average temperature during one day and night is below 10 degrees celsius). this year, it was late and only arrived yesterday. a few weeks ago, i thought it a good idea to prepare.
what better way to celebrate the arrival of autumn than with a new pair of mittens! i’ve finished one so far, and i hope to complete the pair this upcoming week. i really will need them, there really has been quite a significant drop in temperature the last couple of days.
