Clepsydra Mittens
Designed by Kirsten Kapur

Clepsydra: klep-si-druh “an ancient device for measuring time by the regulated flow of water or mercury through a small aperture.”

The Clepsydra mittens have twisted cables that flow from cuff to fingertips. A cabled i-cord adds interest and rings the wrist. Worked in Berroco Ultra Alpaca, they are a decadent treat for yourself or gift for a dear friend.
