One more geek kept warm!

A good friend of my graduated from Helsinki University of Technology (or Aalto university) and now that he was an official nerd (i.e. engineer), I thought he needed something geeky to keep him warm during the winter. I looked for different patterns for a while, but this was in the end the geekiest pattern I could find:

Pattern: Geek mittens
Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä
Needles: 3 mm

I skipped the penguin and made them a little bit smaller but for the rest I pretty much followed the colourwork-pattern. And they should be quite warm too, thanks to that colourwork and doubble yarn on the inside.

It would by the way be interesting to know if the numbers actually mean something! Anyone out there who speaks 10110001-language? :)
