It seems every year for the past few years I fall deeply in love with Norwegian/Latvian style mittens. The intricate patterns are so beautiful and those pointed tips! I cannot resist. Despite my love for said mittens I don't own anything even remotely like them. My mitten of choice has been a pair of boring gray Thinsulate mittens. While warm, they leave much to be desired.

Part of this problem is I do not knit! I can sometimes manage a full row of regular stitches with no issues but that's about it. If only I could fast forward my skills so that I could create some Fiddlehead Mittens of my own. In the meantime I've been scouring etsy. I may just have to splurge on a pair of mittens this year.

I do wear mittens for like... 6 months of the year so why not? :)


  1. Those are beautiful! Oooh, I'm craving mittens now!

  2. Aren't they gorgeous. I've sent your post to my DD1 hopefully she might get the hint and make me some! :o)

  3. Such beauty! I don't knit much, but I'm hoping to be inspired enough to really dive in, eventually. But, for now, I can't imagine sacrificing my sewing time...

  4. You should definitely splurge on them (if you don't fast forward your skills, which I don't doubt you will!). They are adorbs.
