Last winter I had many customers contacted me with request for a slouchy socks and aran knits. So, to answer these and also make my tribute to St. Patricks Day, I added some new items to my shop. There are some long socks in traditional off white color and also new fingerless gloves in oatmeal and gray shades.
The patterns I used for these were a combination of diamonds and cables. Not the easiest ones but so pretty.
Did you know that every cable pattern had a meaning on the Aran Islands? Like with many other folkloric designs, it reflected a people's daily lives or activities. There is much more behind every knit aran pattern then just a pretty stitch.
So please stop by my socksandmittens shop to see our new hand knit aran items. I know you will like them!
