Wristwarmers or mittens

On Handarbetets vänner in Stockholm we are learning more about some knitting tradtions in Sweden.The first weekend we have had Skåne .We used needles 1,25mm and white lamb wool yarn.The patterns we are using are from a special sort of "cardigan".

The stars can be all over the knitted one,despite the start.Afterwards they dyed the knitted  in red,green or other colour.It's hard to knit patterns in darker colours .This one has no special patterns on but decorations with ribbons.I really like this "spedetröja" made by our teacher Karin Kahnlund.It would be nice to have one.Still it's only a dream.

Here you find pictures of many different ones.Enjoy.

Next meeting is October 15 and 16 and I hope I can decide if it's going to be mittens or wristwarmers.I have also some more homework I can do.It would be nice knit and decorate something inspired by the traditons from the "spedetröja"

We have 5 weekends more .Next time it's going to be Gotland and Binge
