mitts for the whole family!

Four (4!!!) finished objects at the same time! That's right. The mitts for the women in my family in Poland, inspired by the Fetching design. I changed the cables, so each pair is different, and added a crochet reinforcement at the top, so the glove is less stretchy and open at that part. I am very happy with these, and hope the receipients will be, too! (the yarn was Siena Big by Wolle Roedel, I bought it a year ago when I was still living in Germany; I don't think it's available anywhere else)

I actually think, I will knit one of these for myself. Come to think of that, that's the accessory I need for the cold Swedish autumn...

Wow, great! Exactly what one needs in Scandinavia. When I saw these I immediately got the same thoughts as you - could be very useful. They do look great.

Toppen! Precis vad man behöver i Skandinavien. När jag såg dessa tänkte jag direkt som du - kan verkligen behövas.
De är väldigt fina.
