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.

It’s a very aran-ey fall so far here.

The most exciting knitting news I’ve heard all year: Jared of Brooklyn Tweed has released a new yarn. Read more about it here.
