Aran Island Mittens
Aran Island Mittens. Design by Marcia Lewandowski, published in Folk Mittens.
Knitted in Vermont Organic Fiber Company O-Wool Classic Worsted in oatmeal.
Another project that’s been waiting to be finished for a while, these mittens have been in a drawer of our card catalogue for the past 8 months, waiting for some colder weather to motivate me.
The O-Wool has a lovely feel to it, but it’s not very elastic. That, combined with working on 4 needles made this a little hard on my hands but I’m happy with the product. I might give them 10 minutes in the dryer with my towels to fluff them up a bit.
