more about the mitten
That's not knit, kids. That's naalbinding. Naalbinding, like I mentioned before, is the way the Vikings made their mittens. And socks. Now that I know how to shape the stitches, I'm going to try socks. Whee! Oh, and the tension problems and weirdness I mentioned is what makes it look s a little puckery around the heel of the hand.

Thanks for the compliments, though. I'm very proud. Next step: fulling it in hot sopapy water and the dryer to try to make it more dense and hopefully water-resistant.

i feel: pleased pleased
