J.R.R. Tolkien was a genius. He worked on the Oxford English Dictionary, he wrote books for which he created a complete history/mythology, and he also created multiple languages for his books. The Angerthas is the alphabet he made for the Dwarves. Each rune is formed with all straight lines: perfect for carving in stone and for knitting.

Angerthas mitts

Last week I finished knitting the Angerthas Mitts, and now I’m looking for pattern testers, especially knitters with large or small hands. If you are interested in test knitting please read through the requirements here and reply to the conversation thread. I’m getting everything ready for when the pattern is released (for free) on December 31 in Knotions Magazine.

P.S. If you haven’t been over to Knotions yet, check out my most recent design, the Call Box Hat!
