Knitting Brigit's Mantle

for those of us who are gifted in knitting (or have the patience to become so--as i do not!), Alice Starmore has written about the art and craft of the Aran sweater (Ireland's Gaelic-speaking western islands being the Aran isles) in her book Aran Knitting. a lovely Brigidine example of this is found in Pamela's House of Blues blog. (besides knitting a beautiful blue St. Brigit's sweater, pamela raises Blue Bearded Collies.)

I came across your website because of my own interest in Brigid. Last year I was inspired to restore the custom of Brigid's cloak and you can see the result at www.brigidscloak.com
These cloaks are also sold by the Brigidine sisters in Co. Kildare, Ireland.
