Maimu's Mittens




Just finished the first one, and had to post it: with all the holiday's craze I am not sure when the other one will be ready.
My inspiration was the wonderful pattern from the "Folk Knitting in Estonia" by Nancy Bush. I changed the pattern somewhat, and used different yarns: Romney wool (the natural color), Super Yak (the reddish one), and 100% camel (light brown). All yarns were heavier than required in the pattern resulting in much warmer fabric: just as I intended. I really enjoyed the pattern and the process; can't wait to finish the second mitten!
