Saltwater Mittens is a collection of rare Newfoundland mitten patterns for knitters, collected, and in some cases recreated, by Christine LeGrow of Spindrift Handknits and Shirley "Shirl the Purl" Scott. These two women have teamed up to preserve and promote traditional Newfoundland knitting.
By assembling patterns for hand-knit items such as trigger mitts, flap caps and scarves these women are keeping knitting culture alive. These are traditional Newfoundland mittens patterns that every knitter should have in their collection.
Christine LeGrow is the owner of Spindrift, which offers a unique collection of handknits in the tradition of Newfoundland.
Shirley A. Scott is a mitten designer who specializes in combining history with knitting. She loves to recreate heritage garments.
