Mittens for the boys

lizard mittens

Since I managed to knit up two left mittens for Erlend, I got so mad that I just hide them at the bottom in my knit basket... And picked up another project - Lizard mittens for Endre. I've been having these in my Ravelry queue for a long time, and are so pleased with how they turned out :)

Pattern: Lizard mittens by Torriot.
Yarn: White Hifa 2 Ullgarn and Blue Per Tryving pt2
Needles: 2,5 mm

But Erlend still needed a pair of mittens, so I picked up my newest knit book - Norwegian Handknits: Heirloom Designs from Vesterheim Museum and found a simple, but great pattern :)
It's knitted with the thumb in each side, so the mittens can be used on both hands. And the pattern will change depending on which hand you are using ;) As you can see on the pictures below.

Pattern: Ruth's mittens
Yarn: Mor Aase Superwash
Needles: 3,5 mm

  4. Morsomt å se firfislevottene - får lyst til å lage et par til selv, originalene begynner å bli for små :-)

  5. I love the reversible mittens! I can't decide which way I like them better! The lizards are great, too? You must have some very happy hands all around you!

  6. You are amazing! I love the mittens! I'm knitting a pair of very straightforward cabled mittens right now and have already messed up the cable at the very top (no, I'm not fixing it because I'm so mad) and when I was working on the thumb last night, I noticed I was working it inside out! I'm such an idiot!!!! I got so mad I just chucked it down on the floor. I have to pick them back up again because I'm taking them to London with me! Why do I make such stupid mistakes?

  8. Fantastiske votter og sokker. De gekko-vottene, spesielt. Har alltid hatt et varmt forhold til Gekkoer. Må strikkes!
    Ha en finfin søndag.

  9. Stilige votter. Er vele kanskje tid for å strikke noe varmt til hendene - her går det mest i sokker for tiden.
