Winter… and it is time to start using the traditional Swedish mittens again. My colleague Jenny Bergström runs the fab handicraft shop Svensk Hemslöjd in Stockholm. To celebrate their 120 year anniversary this November, Jenny Bergström has produced DIY-sets of mittens (”stickkitt” in Swedish) in three slightly updated traditional patterns. If you have thought about giving knitting a try…this is your opportunity to make your very own handsome handwear! The material is the best quality certified wool from New Zealand, produced by Klippan. Don’t miss out!
