She and her partner made a trip to Estonia this summer, to tour the homeland together.
Naturally, as knitter, I asked them to bring me something back - something knitted. I told them I didn't care what it was, or how much it cost, as long as it was handknit and local in origin.

They bought the mitts at the city's Knit Market - known as the 'sweater wall'. Fab picture here, on Flickr.
Let me say that again: In Tallinn, Estonia, there is a market area that specializes in hand knits. More info and droolworthy pictures here. Many of the vendors are locals, selling their own work and work of other locals.

Next time I'm going to give them a blank cheque and a empty suitcase so that they can bring me everything back.
