A post for knitters
Saturday, no school, so we stayed in until the sun was truly up-10:30 AM! We had errands to do-including recycling bottles at the grocery store.
Then I went to Kertu for a knitting meet up I read about on Ravelry. I was the only non-Finnish speaker there, but several people there spoke to me in English about their knitting. I sat next to a very ingenious knitter who was knitting mittens on the magic loop. She had already knit the thumb on the magic loop and had it waiting on double pointed needles. She knit down from the top of the mitten and when she reached the point for the thumb she very cleverly grafted it in place. She told me she has published this pattern on Ravelry. She was taught the pattern by her grandmother.
When I find her pattern on Ravelry I will let you know. But this is her blog. I will publish some more pictures of Finnish knitters in a separate post.
