The olive mittens

The mittens are also from Annemor Sundbøs book “Norwegian mittens and gloves” She says this about the pattern:

“The olive branch brings a message of blessing and peace. This comes from the story of Noah in the bible, where a dove returns back to the ark with a olive branch in its beak to tell that the sea had started to sink after the deluge. The olive tree can grow for several hundred years, and is therefore also a symbol of a long life.”
