Fetching Knit Along

One Lone Fetching

I got it!!! I figured out the thumb! Here is the finished one... Note, I really messed up the picot edging, and I am alright with that. This was a real learning experience for me. First thumb. First time knitting in the round on dpns. First picot edging. Now, I just have to start the second one.... hehehehe.....

I Fetched a Second Pair

This is my second pair of Fetching gloves and these are all mine. I am so happy with the modifications I made to them. I decreased by one stitch in the Knit part of the ribbing on the last 4 rounds ( a snugger fit around the knuckles) and I knit them on size 4 needles instead of 6. Finally, I just BO in the stitch instead of trying to picot my way out. They fit me great and I will wear them with pride this fall! Happy Knitting, all!!
Peace~ DAWN (WildYarn)

Finished Fetching

It was so quick from CO to BO I barely remember knitting them.

Finished Fetching

I knit the second glove over the last two nights while watching the Andy Warhol documentary on PBS's "American Masters." My gloves are dedicated to the memory of my fellow western Pennsylvanian, Andy.

I do think I printed the pattern incorrectly or missed something b/c my cuffs seem to be missing a cable twist compared to everyone else's and I have a little bit of leftover yarn. I used Debbie Bliss's cashmerino in evergreen. I think I'll make them again in a brighter color, like a pink. This is a lovely pattern!

Addicted to fetching!

So, this was two days ago, and now I am up to the thumb hole... I am so confused. This is the first time that I have knitted on dpn's, so I think this is going really well. I really hope that I can figure out the thumb because I want to finish this one, and the mate before Monday morning. I really want to wear them to work!!! I am using a varigated yarn - which is not so great for cables. I will probably make another pair in a solid color.

Second pair in process

Hi....I am LOVING this pattern. I'm half way through my second pair. I promise to post a picture soon. The yarn is yummy and it's a project that I can complete and still work full-time and parent two children. I've neglected my blog for several months now. Just too little time, but I've managed to squeeze in knitting time and these have been my latest favorite. I'm thrilled I found a KAL for Fetching. Glad to be here.

Many firsts

Hi all! I was in the process of completing my first pair of Fetching when I stumbled across this KAL. So glad to join in! Fetching was my first attempt at knitting cables/in the round/on DPN/using cable cast on/picot bind off.... haha

So I'm rather proud of the results. :)

Here are my first pair of Fetching. I really like this pattern and I'm going to be casting on for another pair soon because I think they will make a nice gift.

Two pairs done

I've really enjoyed making these fingerless gloves. They're surprisingly easy and look much more complicated than they are. I made the Navy pair for my mum and the Lilac for myself. The Navy ones feature the picot bind off. Sadly, while I was finishing the second glove of the Lilac pair I ran out of yarn so had to unknit the top five rows of the first glove then bind off normally. Despite the initial panic, I think the Lilac pair have turned out really well so all was not lost. I've got three more balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran so will make a few more pairs since they knit up so quickly.
