A friend of mine has been to Kongsberg. Knowing that I am above average interested in knitted mittens, she sent me s couple of photos of her friens's mittens, the official Kongsberg mittens. Kongsberg is an old Norwegian town, famous for its silver ("sølv") mine.
We wondered about the criteria to become an official mittens, but googling, we found that there hat been a competion organized by "Husflidslaget".
(I'm afraid all the links in this post are in Norwegian..)
I live in a small Norwegian town. When I'm not busy with the rest of my life, I love crafting. I mostly knit, but I also crochet and sew. I like to make my own designs. If you have questions about my patterns, feel free to contact me: torirot(at)gmail(dot)com
