I am smitten with my mittens!
This is Project #1 from my quest to make lots of projects from the book entitled "Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders". These mittens are made from two balls of wool in a self-patterning yarn called "Abiente" from the manufacture Schoppel Wolle in a color called "Heckenrosen". Since this German yarn had an interesting name, I had to try to figure out the English translation. I know "rosen" to translate to "roses" (plural) in German thanks to my many, many years of studying German. I Googled "heckenrosen" and found beautiful blossoms which looked like apple blossoms. I found a Wikipedia article and wouldn't you know... it was in German. My best guess is that "heckenrosen" translates to "wild roses". If I am wrong and you know differently, please let me know... I'd be curious to know!
