Re: More photos from Sirkka Kononen and more
- Thanks Karin, again! I found the link to her online store in case
anyone else would like to visit:
I can't really tell if this is for the kit or the knitted mittens
all made up but I did find a link with a photo for them:
Those were some photos you posted Karin! Nothing close to it on
their website! I am wondering if they will ever publish patterns
for anything other than the mittens!
I also went over to Solveig Hisdal's site from the links list for
the group, I had not seen that site before, her new collection of
ready made knitwear is very beautiful, and very inspiring.
