Latvian Spring

Latvian mitten in spring... with latte macciato (knitting on the balcony).
Latvian mitten in spring... with daffodils.

Willi writes that she's "Walking The Line" with the mittens. ; ) The temperature in Berlin has been 18-22C (mid-60s to 70F)! I guess spring has sprung -- and if the daffodils are blooming, there's not much chance that she'll have need of mittens 'til next year!
Aren't they fabulous, though? I love that she named the photos "Latvian Spring."
She writes: I've made an entrelac stripe, don't know if it would be against Latvian standard design, but I wanted to have a connection to my next work: Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole!
And so I've a swatch in a mitten.

I really love the designs in these mittens - it looks "Neo-Latvian" to me. The entrelac cuff adds lots of impact - a really innovative addition. Congrats, Willi!
