Riihivilla Blooms

I started these mittens yesterday, using a pattern and yarn from Riihivilla, purchased in Helsinki's Market Square last December and found on Ravlery! I had to do the cuff twice, since it was too big with the recommended 3.5mm needles, but it's just perfect with the 3mm ones. I tweaked the pattern just a bit because I only have four colors, but I'm happy with the results so far!

It's Been a While!

I didn't do much knitting over the summer, just a couple of pairs of socks, but I finally got back to these mittens (started in April) and it didn't take much time to finish them off. Improvised the cabled pattern, Novita Nalle yarn, 3mm needles.
