Another Pair of Mittens: Latvian Alsunga pattern

The Latvian Pattern book is filled with fantastic patterns. This is from the district Alsunga, but I made it "in my own" colour scheme, since in my mind, the entire colourscheme used in the book does not appeal to me. It reminds me of the 70's.. and not in a good way... The pattern is rather busy and I know I should have taken the picture in a softer light, since it really shows that they are not been blocked (wet, and pressed). Well, there are more work on these: Folded lace edge, and the thumbs match the pattern (so they should be "invisible" held against the mitten)... But I guess it does not really show. I used Östergötlands Ullspinnery yarns. You can see the tree blooming in the background, I am unfortunately fighting the normal spring allergies together with a cold. Let's say it is not as pleasent as knitting. Btw. Thank you all for you superkind comments. It is so nice to know that someone else enjoys knitting accomplishments. Have a great day now!! The sun is out again!
