Our October designer is Mary O’Shea. I learned about Mary while traveling in Maine this summer and liked her mitten and hat designs. Mary is from North Orland, Maine and recently retired as a middle school science teacher.
What we love about Mary’s designs are the colorful options and her mitten design technique where she knits in a wooly worsted weight yarn at a fairly snug gauge, proof against bitter winter winds! The thumb gusset is placed just to the edge of the palm, giving a comfortable ergonomic fit.
