lovikka mittens 2012/13

lovikka mittens 2013

I actually knitted these two pair of Lovikka mittens pretty much exactly a year ago. I just never got around to do the embroidery until now. And since none of us (the blue ones are for me, the orange ones a gift) were in desperate need of another couple of mittens it hasn't been a priority.

And with a long, hot summer and a green winter, really thick mittens hasn't been called for. (Any excuse is good, unless it's a really bad excuse.)

But it seemed awfully... silly not to finish them completely before the end of the year, so here they are. Lovikka mittens 2012/13.

I have to say I really very much enjoy both colours. Love that the Lovikka yarn comes in so many fresh, modern colours these days, even neon-ish ones. I have my eyes set on making a pair of neon-ish green ones some time soon. I do not enjoy neon colours in general (they fall in the category of loathsome animal prints and metallic colours) but the clash between a classic, sensible pattern like Lovikka design and neon-ish wool was quite irresistable really.

Apparently one can't have too many scarves, shawls, magic socks, wristwarmers, beanies, hats or Lovikka mittens...

I have some that are at least 30 years old. I didn't know that's what they are called!
