dainty mitts

after thinking about these, and plotting the yarn, and finally committing to them, i finally finished these mitts! they were actually very quick, given the tiny, tiny needles and yarn. i love that they have sort of a vintage feel to them. i'd like to think of one day (30 years from now) someone coming across them and getting very excited of such a wonderful, vintage handmade find.

i used Elann Peruvian Pure Alpaca Fina, less than 1 skein on US 4 needles. the pattern is by french kit. you can check out the other projects on ravelry.
