Folk Mittens published in 1997 (one of my oldie-but-goody stash) by Marcia Lewandowski is the latest on my chopping block! A lovely book to be sure, but I’m not likely to be making ethnic mittens any time soon.
Marcia is a Minnesota gal who at the time of the book was living in Bolivia. I looked her up on Ravelry and it seems that many of her posted designs are very Andean inspired so she may well be still living in the Andes.
This page of mitten shapes and thumb styles is really a good addition and great for a novice mitten-maker.
For those want to start out with the basics, classic mittens are perfect!
The majority of the mittens in the book have ethnic roots and are real beauties.
Love these mittens with the clever inserted hearts!
A nod to Marcia’s adopted homeland in Bolivia.
Fun tiny mittens are a nice ending to the book.
