I was getting a bit worried of not getting these mittens done in time. Remember how I was all set up to knit socks for the Bennett sisters from the book Pride and Prejudice (for Knit the Classics KAL)but if the girls won't like any of the stockings I'm knitting now, I'm afraid they'll have to go barefoot all winter... At least the mittens for the are done.
These are twined knit (yarn from Firma Krokmaskan Sweden), the pattern is my own and embroidery (wool from Renaissance Dyeing, silk/wool from the Threadgatherer) is done with chain stitches.
I want to thank you all for the comments on the knee highs. Almost 200 grams of Trekking XXL was used to knit them and they are for my daughter Nadja. She dances ballet and her legs and feet are under a great stress daily, so she really appreciates wool and warmth.
