OK, another fuzzy Latvian mitten picture! (I take about 10 to get one ok picture!) Thanks for the comments! Anyway, Visjö, from Östergötlands Ullspinneri is best knitted on needles 3mm-3.5, this is 2mm (I wanted them tight to honour the latvian knitting). Actually the typical frill-brim (hmm my english) was the hardest (=timeconsuming) to knit. Then it was straight forward. A bit dissappointed with the turquoise between the yellows, that should have a bit stringer contrast.
Otherwise, not until I reached the thumb, I suddenly saw the front -page of the book, understood that this was the pattern I was knitting - and realizing, that the pattern was "wrong". But I try to make it a bit "swedish" witht the colours. Well, now I really MUST go to Östergötland and find the yarn, so I can do the second mitten. Otherwise I will do it the "american style", have unmatched mittens. I'm not too sure I like it. Yarn-chasing goes first (Hey, it is a SPORT!) Now I always will have a reason to visit them! Forgot to tell that the Swedish Icehockey championships goes to my favorite team - FBK! 4-1 one period still to go.. Looks GREAT!
