Nope - it aint that one. I was on google search for fair island patterns when a pic of you and a book came up in the search. It was a book with 3-4 different patterns / charts on the front. One was a horse / deer in red ore orange. It was becose of that one i found this site and became a member - but when i was finished becomming a member - i had lost the book.

Last year there was a site

Last year there was a site which showed hundred of patterns of mittens done in colourwork...Ukranian, Lithuanian? Latvian? something along those lines - and the pictures were good enough you could graph the patterns from them.

I'll try to find it again if it's still up.

aha! LATVIAN MITTENS FROM NATO SUMMIT
There are seven galleries linked off this page - hundreds of designs. It would take some work to chart the patterns from the pictures but if nothing else a lot of eye-candy and inspiration.

Hey Grandcarriage

I got Zilboorgs book " Magnificent Mittens" for a christmas present and i belive that the really magnificent about it was the price 300$. The mittens are great - but ... its not worth so much money.

Velkommen, Lb.

We don't care how good anyone's English is, we only care about their interest in knitting. I think someone here will have some information for you, or have some idea where to look. Stay with us and we can all learn from each other. God paske!

Hey Albert and thank you so

Hey Albert and thank you so much.
Its so difficult to get the hands on the really old patterns. It seems that museums just want them to dust down and not share them with people exept from on pics ore under glass.

God påske :)
