First deliveries

I saw the first two mitten recipients yesterday and the mitts I gave them were a great success:

If you click on this one, you might be able to make out 'Mary's First Blanket Stitch' running along the contrast palm (it was the only way to squeeze out one more pair from this perfect Fair Isle sweater):

I so loved making them both - the grey ones look sort of plain by comparison with the Fair Isle, but the lining, my friends, is supersoft Italian merino in a nice heavy weight. Pure luxury.
