Lingonberry mittens

I made this for a mitten/handwarmer swap and sent them to my mitten friend in Iceland. The yarn is Jamieson&Smith Shetland yarn for the green, Jamieson Shetland yarn for the purple. It ended up taking 1 ball of the background colour and maybe a half ball of the foreground colour. The pattern is an old Swedish pattern called Lingonberry from the OOP The (Swedish) Mitten Book.

    I have looked at that beautiful patten in the Mitten Book for years – yours are delicate and beautiful in the reversed light/dark – Now I want to make them even more!
    Your mitten friend is lucky!!

    Anyone would trade a kidney to be that friend right about now! 🙂 They are absolutely lovely. I have that book and now have to give it another look! I’ll have to give up sleeping with all the things (mostly mittens) that I wish to knit!
    Great mittens!
