Various mittens

I have been busy with mittens these past few weeks: beautiful Marco's mittens design from Nancy Bush " Folk Knitting in Estonia", and a free design from Maschas Maschen on Ravelry using Riihivilla naturally dyed yarns (the mitten on the left). I changed the Ravelry design incorporating Kihnu Troi cast on, and a couple of Kihnu Vits braids (love them)!

Rupture sweater aka Evening Gala Aran

I knitted this sweater during the unplanned free time while recovering from the torn meniscus surgery - hence the name: rupture. First I wanted to name it “Torn meniscus”, but my husband advised against it, and suggested “Rupture” instead.
I did not feel like adding feathers and other bells and whistles.
