During Midsummer weekend (we Finns have a long weekend, and celebrate Midsummer: many go to summer cottages, burn big Midsummer fires, and eh drinking is usually in the eve's program, too) I spent four hours (!) handling skeins and winding them into smaller yarn balls, duh, and no, my box of skeins is not empty yet. It did occur to me that "supermarket yarns" do have their good sides, namely being readily in smaller balls ;)
Brown nalbound mittens women's size, and about 11 years-old's size. Yarn was so thick I chose a "simple" stitch - simple meaning "less-loopy" stitch - ie Oslo Stitch in this case. Yarn is from Villa Laurila, Finnish Sheep yarn, thick "single ply", though actually it is 4-ply ;)
Alla olevat neulakintaat 8-vuotiaan kokoa, lankana Puro ja värinä kanervikko. Pistona Åslen pisto, mutta kiinnitys varsinaisen Åslen piston (pystysuoran kiinnityksen) sijasta ihan tavis F1.
Variegated nalbound mittens, ab. 8 years-old's size. Yarn Novita Puro, colourway "heather". I used Åsle Stitch, but instead of the usual Bottom1+F1 connection, I used plain F1.
