ardalanish mitts1ardalanish mitts 2

Fingerless gloves – another Christmas present. Knitted to my own design, using a traditional Shetland lace pattern called Print o the Wave. The wool used is produced on the Isle of Mull at a place called Ardalanish (click here for more details). It knits as 4-ply/ DK. These were knitted on 3.75mm needles, as I usually knit quite loosely. But I think future ones will be on 3.5mm needles, as they’re slightly wider than designed. But the person they’re aimed at has wider hands than I do, so they should be ok. The pattern is available here for anyone interested 🙂
