This summer, I’ve been binging on The History Channel’s “Vikings” which I really am getting into. It’s inspired me. This is a quick sketch I made of a design for some fingerless mitts I want to make, inspired by the character of Lagertha, the shield-maiden and earl of Ingstad. The mitt on the right represents the design on her shields. The one on the left is her name written in Viking runes (thanks Google, for that!!)
Here, I’ve knit the triangle shaped bottom section and started on the color work. I’m nearly through with it, though, thank goodness. I hate doing stranded color work because I never can get the tension quite the way I want it.
