My usually amazing ILL people have failed in being able to track down these articles, but if anyone else wants to have a go, they're welcome to. :) I'm putting it up here in case it is useful for someone.

After e-mailing Þjóðminjasafn Íslands /The National Museum of Iceland, to ask about the mittens from Heynes and Garðar, I received a lovely reply saying not much has been written about the adult mitten (except what I'd already mentioned in my e-mail*), but there was more information about the child's mittens:

Áslaug Sverrisdóttir. 2004. "Tóskapur, ullarvinna í bændasamfélaginu" Hlutavelta tímans (Reykjavík: Þjóðminjasafn Íslands); 194-203.
Elsa E. Guðjónsson. 1994. "Barnavettlingar frá Heynesi" Gersemar og þarfaþing (Reykjavík: Þjóðminjasafn Íslands); 206-207.
Elsa E. Guðjónsson. 1985. "Um prjón á Íslandi" Hugur og hönd. (Reykjavík: Rit Heimilisiðnaðarfélags Íslands 1985.); 8-12.
* Elsa E. Guðjónsson. 1962. Forn röggvarvefnaður Árbók Hins Íslenzka Fornleifafélags 59; 12-71.
* Pálmi Pálsson. 1895. Um myndir af gripum í forngripasafninu Árbók Hins Íslenzka Fornleifafélags 10; 30-35.

The most promising article looks to be "Barnavettlingar frá Heynesi" but darned if I can get my hands on a copy. :(
