Nordic Mittens

Nordic patterns, especially for mittens, get me inspired and enthusiastic to knit. When I can’t find enthusiasm, this is one of my go-to books and like magic, the world is a more beautiful place.

So when my friend, Phryne,  who participates in Medieval reenactments with authentic handmade garments, tools, shoes, foods, etc.,  asked if I’d make her some Nordic mitt I was all over it.

Since Phryne chose red and pink, I chose the mitt pattern that has hearts on it. 007I got the cuff knit and started on the wrist and it became obvious something needed to change. You can see how the color values are too close, the pattern is not discernible.

So I ran to the store, got more yarn, and began again:

Now a lovely light pink and red.

Laugh. Dance. Learn. Create. Knit
