Mountaineering is all about the right gear…
And by that I mean the right hand knitted gear!
Wearing my Lauf vest (single pattern PDF – an interpretation of typical mittens from the Westfjords of Iceland), my Vintage scarf with Icelandic roses (free pattern to try your hands on Icelandic intarsia), a black cabled hat of unknown origins (found in a drawer in my house…), the Skagafjordur mittens (pattern from my book Icelandic handknits, typical embroidered mittens from the fjord Skagafjörður North Iceland).
The Skagafjordur mittens are delicately embroidered with the Old Icelandic cross stitch.
Blue spot, yellow spot … ice axe hole and fox pee slot!
