That is beautiful work. I adore those mittens and an EZ version is on my list of things to knit.


Ohh, those are SO wonderful--I love them! I'm goig to have to make a pair of those for myself . . .


Wow! It's incredible Jan.

For some reason I always assumed that intricate patterns like that had to be done by a machine. But I'm not a knitter so what do I know.


Your mittens look lovely, Jan! I love the little birds.


Jan it's just gorgeous. Tweet indeed! Well done too on the thumb join. Tricky! Moving to Scandinavia some time soon? :)


I don't even have words to express how I envy you that mitten. Charts always seem so fiddly to me (I go for plain, brainless, easy stuff, like self striping socks), but i can see now I need to expand my horizons... I crave those mitts! going to hunt down my fox & geese book, now... Cami

Oh so beautiful! I live in Texas. No need for mittens. I would love to try one of these. I will resist the temptation. Back to quilting. LOL

I love BOTH mittens. I'm enjoying following your progress(ions). I only have one mitten done myself and need to return to the mate soon. I always enjoy your blog.


tweet? i thought for sure this post would be about none other than yours truly. nice mitten--you're catching up to me!


Your latest mitten looks great! It doesn't take long to get the feel for the tension, does it? And as Sr. Alaquin (my piano teacher who used to rap me on the knuckles with a ruler when I played a wrong note) always used to say -- practice makes perfect!


I love these! Mind if I link to them?


Looking good. Looks like you have the technique nailed.


You've certainly gotten the hang of it - that red one is fabulous! (Blue's not the least shabby either, but I see your points of improvement.) Now for partners so they don't get lonely.


It's beautiful!


Very sweet! I just love red birds. ;-)

The mitten turned out lovely! Personally I like to use the Baby Wool from Dale of Norway. It is soft and can be washed in machine and the colours are delicious. The scraps make lovely granny squares.



These turned out sweeeeeeeeeet!


Very nice! I love the bird motif.


Color me impressed! That is such incredibly detailed work!! Wowza.


all i can do is say WOW! i can't imagine making something from yarn so beautiful! truly wonderful...

Awesome! And it's great to see the progress!!!


Oh my goodness, lovely, lovely mittens! Nice work! You must be so proud!

Very inspiring. I just love traditional projects - yours are very sweet!


The little mitten is great - love those birds.


Looking great! Don't worry about the bulging fingers on the blue ones - many of the old mittens do that, too. It's jut because there are so many more stitches there than at the base off the thumb. You'll be making sweaters in no time!
