Newfoundland Map Mittens are worked circular on 4 dpt needles. The Fair Isle Technique adds extra warmth. I used 55 gm of Cascade 220 Superwash solid colour and 45gm of Cascade 220 Paints, if colours are reversed there would be enough yarn for 2 pairs of mittens.
" Havin a time" Mummering and Mummers. The tradition is still alive and well in Newfoundland and Labrador Canada. Mummering is an ancient pagan custom that was an excuse for people to have a party at Christmas! It means 'making diversion in disguise'. The tradition was that men and women would swap clothes, put on masks and go visiting their neighbours, singing and dancing.
