I have homework researching Ireland. So far I've come to realize what a complicated history it has! Hopefully it's geology is a little easier to understand.
Aran / 10 ply
Size 6 DPNs
Mods: I started with a 1x1 twisted rib on the palm side, and also twisted the knit stitches between the cable. I knew this pattern would be large. The wrists were still a bit large.
The yarn is made in Ireland and I purchased it many moons ago at Madrona. Since I only had one skein the options were limited. I tried this yarn out on a few other things, but wouldn't you know it wanted to be Irish Hiking Mitts! The color has a lot of depth to it and the stitch definition is good.
I am planning to go to Ireland next year on a tour. I found out while researching various things that some people I thought were Irish are not...Mumford and Sons and MacKenzie Thorpe for two.
