This is my Latvian Mitten

The object of my affection the past few days...


.. from the District of Latgale. The instructions are very well written. And encouraging. Ms. Upitis promises me to "...take heart!...with the passing of rows, the interest in the design grows." And when I finally finish the sets of braids, "the rest of the mittens seem to fly by." She really wants me to finish these mittens.
I have chosen a Dale of Norway yarn, in a non-traditional color combination. I think they will be lovely.
Thanks for the Knit Along, Vicki!

The cuff is a pain.

Love the non-traditional colors! And, your braids look great. Mine are a bit funky still.

Very striking colors! They're gonna be awesome. And Ms. Upitis was right, I was very happy when I finished the cuffs.
