I came across this book Latvieša Cimdi in the Knit Like A Latvian group at Ravelry in November last year. I could not afford the book then, but have bought it as a birthday present for myself ;)
There are so many beautiful mittens in this book I don't know which one I shall knit first... Erlend asked me to knit him a pair of new mittens, so there might be a pair for him first.
I think the group is going to have a kal next month, so I might join them as well. I bough my book from here.
Here's a video were the author talks about the book. I don't understand a word, but there is so many beautiful mittens in it so you have to watch it!
