Hand knitted Birdsong mitts, match these with the Birdsong hat . From the Maria - Voyages in design pattern book.
The pattern is inspired by birds of the mountain. The design depicts feather markings, gum flowers and twining leaves. Northern European styles of knitting are used with Latvian braids, Finnish yarn from Tuku, a bit of lace at the cuff edge and various Fair Isle patterns. These were really fun to knit.
These knitted using the yellow colourings of the Striated Pardalote with the grey. The Finnish tuku yarn is fabulous - really warm and soft, with great depth of colour achieved by dying over grey fleece.
