So, I am on my way to discovering the knitted mittens of my heritage. Did my first thrummed mitten which is done or came from Newfoundland and I will be taking a class on Latvian Mittens in Boston with Lizbeth Upitis. I must really want to take this class, because I will be leaving my lakefront camp on 3 Sats in the summer to go to Boston! I live in Mid NH on Lake Winnipesaukee. I grew up there in the summer with a whole bunch of Latvians around me.
