Beautiful mittens on every page! And reading about where they all came from is such a neat addition to just listing the patterns. It took me a solid day and a half to choose which mitten I wanted to knit first. The only thing is I apparently chose a pattern that needs errata added! The Vestland Rose Mitten on page 88 has it's cuff cabling instructions backwards! For left leaning, hold the cable needle IN FRONT of the work. For a right leaning, hold the needle to the BACK! Otherwise you just get a purly mess and an hour or two of confusion like I did!
