on the needles from Sweden
I was nudged into knitting lovikka mittens and now I'm on my 3rd pair. Our Swedish exchange student was here in May, she taught me and another gal how to knit the mitts. We didn't have the right yarn or needles. I had four size 8 needles the other gal didn't have any and being a holiday weekend in a small town there were none to be had so her dad cut some dowels to length and ground the ends to nice points and cut one for me. After my practice pair I ordered lovikka yarn from an etsy shop and knit the green pair with the needles I had.
