Just in time for "Snow-mageddon 2", we've got a new mitten pattern. (My apologies to those of you who are not in the mid-Atlantic or north eastern US. Our recent snows are a bit of an obsession in these parts.)
Clepsydra: klep-si-druh“an ancient device for measuring time by the regulated flow of water or mercury through a small aperture.” -Dictionary.com
These mittens are worked in blissfully soft Creatively Dyed Yarns, Holi. Holi is a lovely blend of wool, alpaca & silk. If you've never used Dianne's yarns before, you're in for a treat. She's got an amazing way with colors. The wool, alpaca & silk blend makes this yarn blissfully soft and gives your projects a delicate halo.
The Clepsydra mittens have twisted cables that flow from cuff to fingertips. A cabled icord adds interest and rings the wrist. Worked in Creatively Dyed Yarn’s Holi (Wool, Alpaca, Silk) they are a decadent treat for yourself or gift for a dear friend.
