let it snow

i finished my lerwick mittens last night. at a few minutes to midnight i weaved in the last ends of the right mitten.

lerwick mittens

pattern: lerwick x’s & o’s from knitting fair isle mittens and gloves
design: unknown
yarn: a little of this and that. all 100% 2-ply wool, some from morjärv, some from kampes and some might be hifa. i used stashed yarn throughout.
needles: 2mm for cuff, top of mittens and thumbs. 2,5mm for the fair isle patterned part
modifications: added a thumb gusset/wedge (of course), made the top of the mittens a bit more rounded than the original.
