Mittens for my dear mum
I made these mittens for my mum. I really wanted to make her something special that reminds her of me and something "very icelandic" because she spends a lot of time abroad. The mitten-pattern is created by me (yarn: léttlopi) and fits perfectly for my mothers hands. I wanted to use a embroidery-chart out of a book, but ended up making up my own (yarn: einband), which makes these mittens more personal. I´m happy with the result, but next time I make mittens like that, I´ll use "kambgarn" for the knit and I´ll start with the cross-stich-pattern on the top... I can´t wait to give them to my mum!
