Mittens for the boys
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
