About Saltwater Mittens:
"Woollen mittens have long been a Newfoundlander’s best friend. The warmer the better. In a quirky climate of freeze, thaw, blow, and drizzle, good mittens made all tasks easier—to split birch, hammer a nail, gut a fish, draw and haul water, hang clothes on a line, shoot a seabird, or snare a rabbit. Social life, too, always required the finest mittens and gloves. This continues today."
Authors Christine LeGrow and Shirley Scott have delighted lovers of traditional wool with their latest book about colorwork mittens.
