Anyone with an interest in nordic knitting patterns would be very wise to include this treasure trove in their library. The patterns are stunning and very knittable, even by a beginner like me. The variety in Estonian national costumes is stunning... naturally, knit mitts and stockings are an important part of this statement of identity. I was loath to give away the mitts and gloves I made... almost wanted to make an extra mitt or glove to frame and display in my own home. This is more than just knitting... it's creating art.
Nancy Bush has done it again. She makes you feel like you are a part of the knitter's families in Estonia. Her illustrations and technique explanations are flawless and the patterns are unique and very easy to follow.
