The Delicatos



First pair of Delicato done! Not blocked or ends woven in, but the knitting done. So by my calculations, I have 2 pairs of mitts done now. Hmmm. Okay, well I have another month or so... But in the meantime, this lovely pair, a present for someone un-nameable here, I made with a sock yarn called Monarch by Fly Designs in the Petrol colour. The sock yarn is a little chunkier than the pattern called for, but I wanted a pair of mitts that were a little more "solid" and less "lacey". They are lovely and warm, and oh so pretty in their wandering colours.



A "lacy-er" pair coming up next!
