After spotting a knitting book of mittens on the Cinq website, I had to do some research to find out more about the pretty mittens found on the front cover.
Here is some of what I came across in my google searching!
Image 1: I stumbled across these beautifully made Squirrel Swedish Mittens made by Hello Yarn using a free pattern generously written by Elli from Elliphantom Knits.
Image 2: I spied this beautiful photo over tempting yarn here.
Image 3: 'The Book'... Stickmönster på Öland - Maria Leimar, ISBN: 9163087545.
Image 4: Mittens and gloves bought today at the Camberwell Markets!! Also purchased, a copy of the latest Melbourne Design Guide at the Coventry bookstore.
Image 5: Beautifully made and photographed herringbone mittens with poms by Elli. Elli has generously written a pattern to freely download from her blog.
I'm starting to think I want to undertake another new challenge!! Conquering these skills might take me sometime but I'm happy to show you my work in progress along the way!!
Now I'm off to learn knitting 101.
