Bullfinch Mittens

Pattern by Jorid Linvik

I am a big fan of Bullfinches so when I saw these mittens, I just had to knit them, so I did. But it didn’t go as planed, because when it was time to pick up for the thumb, something went horrible wrong and it ended up being ripped up, the whole thing and after that I just lost interest for a year. But this year I picked it up again and learned from my mistake and finished them. I am SO pleased with them and they are so warm.

I never thought that I could knit a pattern like this but I really wanted them so I just went for it, and I’m glad I did. I have learnt so much by making them and that will just help me in the future in the next pair I will make.

Green buttons

Green buttons for the Oh-Land/Öland cardigan

I finally got the buttons that I ordered from www.e-slojd.se January 13 but I had to remind them twice before they sent them. Anyway, these buttons are for the Oh-land cardigan that I knitted recently and after seeing these up front I decided on the biggest ones.

Perfect for the cardigan
The Oh-Land/Öland cardigan

The sad thing with this one is that before I vlocked it it fitted perfectly but now the yoke is massive and I need to sort it out in one way or another and I think I have come up with a good idea, so I will be trying that out first before I mention it here and show you what I did.
