Dealas - Committed

IMG_7817.JPG

It’s about time for a new fingerless mitts pattern isn’t it? I’m now spending a lot of time standing around in the playground waiting for the bell to ring - either to drop my son off, or to pick him up — and it’s definitely getting colder out there! The Socks in Love collection maybe complete, but I clearly wasn’t done with that gorgeous stitch yet because the next thing to hop onto my needles used the same stitch! Dealas means commitment and is the perfect companion to the collection or the perfect stand alone piece if socks aren’t your thing!

These had a super easy design journey which of course doesn’t leave me much to talk about! The yarn I used was Eden Cottage Yarns Hayton 4ply - it’s my absolute favourite yarn for mitts. The cashmere makes it deliciously soft, and the nylon means it can stand up to wear. Victoria very kindly put on a special Hayton 4 ply update last night for me, and there’s still plenty of gorgeous colours left! Hope over to the link and see if anything takes your fancy. If you’d like to recreate mine, I used her Briar Rose colourway.

My testers also had beautiful results using a mix of yarns. Check out their projects here to see what they used!

I had a fantastic day away at Perth Festival of Yarn last week, met some really lovely people and friends, listened to Jeanette Sloan’s talk on BIPOC Representation in the Knitting Community, and stocked up on plenty of yarn for the designs I have planned over the next few months, as well as a project bag and a few other extras!
