Designer Feature: Baileys by Justyna Lorkowska

Polish designer Justyna Lorkowska has published a fingerless mitt pattern, Baileys, knit with one skein of The Fibre Co. Arranmore

From Justyna, in her description of Baileys: 

These mitts will warm both your heart and your hands. The luxurious wool blend knit up in form-fitting rib caresses the skin, while a cable and bobble motif graces the back of the hand. Ordinary thumb increases worked in a not-so-ordinary place create pleasing lines and make these mitts uniquely special.

Knit with just one skein these would make a quick knit project for instant gratification.
