kitty: first mitten done

Happy Valentine Day!!!!

And I am in love....

First Mitten Done

I may have just fallen head over heals in love with Tvåändsstickning / Twined Knitting / Two End Knitting now after the class. Something about locking your threads just seems magical to me. Though after doing lots of research in the last couple of days I found out that I am actually doing the Japanese form for Twined Knitting and not the Sweedish because of how I wrap my yarns.

I think my favorite part has to be the purl side of the knitting.


  1. Beautiful! And it looks like it should keep your hands really toasty. :)

  2. The details didn't show up in the photo you sent me via camera phone. It is so much prettier in this photo.

  3. Oh my--that is soooo elegant! The colors are just lovely and the texture is fabulous!

  4. This is incredible! I love the links and I love your mitten. This is going to be a great resource.

  5. That's so great that you stuck with it. I've got the book on two-end knitting, and since I saw it as one of your links, I've got a copy of Piecework. I love this technique, but have never actually tried it. The link to Anne-Majs Stickning with the amazing photos is really AMAZING! I'd like to have each and every piece they show. It's unbelievable to knit sweaters in this technique, and all are so beautiful! Thanks for all those links.

  6. Looks good that mitten, texture is very interesting. And thanks for sharing those links.
