I have not abandoned mittens.

Let me be clear on that. Mittens are not done. I will knit mittens for the rest of my life. Mittens are neat little succulent cookies of knitting.

And to prove it, two new in-progress designs.

Oslo, the proceeds of which will go to victims of the horrible attacks. This is an old design of pierced selburoses surrounded by dancers. I’ve worked a small chain before the main hand. The message is of community and togetherness.

Caught in a Web, another old design. Annemor calls the main pattern spiders in pine boughs. Clever weavers making their homes in evergreen.  It was a popular pattern for wedding gifts. I have placed coins on the palm and chained roses for love on the thumb.

What are you knitting?
