Hello! I made these Delicato Mitts (see link in sidebar) during September in Schaefer Anne, colorway Silver Sage. I really loved the pattern--very well written. I did have to make the thumb a few rounds shorter and did only 6 versus 8 rounds of the eyelet ribbing at the top of the mitt and thumb, but I have rather small hands. The yarn is very soft, but it was very fine for this pattern, even though I got gauge.
I plan to knit a pair of Fine Cabled Mitts next in some leftover Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Green Mountain Madness. I made a Landscape Shawl with most of the yarn, but had enough left for a pair of matching mitts.
