Og Fleiri Vettlingar!

021611Mittens

I just finished up the létt-lopi mittens and couldn't wait to get a pic posted here. I'm really pleased with how these turned out, and you can see the cuffs of the handspun poking out of them. Now I'll have three layers of thick, squishy wool between my hands and the elements.

I could have done these with just two colors, but in the end, I'm fine with how the patterning turned out. The back-of-hand pattern is actually from a Selbu children's stocking pattern. I did the palms in a very basic diamond lattice pattern and diverged from traditional Selbu patterning by putting the thumb gusset on the side. Since these were made specifically to go over the handspun mittens, though, I didn't have an option. It was really easy to do, though, and the very simple speckled patterning is warm without floats to snag on.

The Nasty Ass Honey Badger


Unless you work with a bunch of foul-mouthed degenerates like I do, this may be NSFW. It is high-larious, though.

Those mittens are really pretty bad ass. They have no regard for any other mittens. They just don't give a shit. Craaazzzzeeeeyyyyy! Those mittens are eating larvae. That's disgusting! Nothing can stop those mittens when they're hungry. What a crazy fuck!
