Last winter my wife took up knitting. She had decided that she needed to try to be more domestic and knitting was the most domestic task she could think of, so that's what she took up.

They're based on a tradition pattern from the Selbu region of Norway, and they fit me really well. It's amazing what she can do with two needles and some yarn.
