"Beachcomber" Fetching


After unravelling back and forth and using up more yarn than I expected for my fish scarf, I decided not to make these gloves only in the nature brown cashmere yarn, but found this old Cotton Sport yarn in a bag and decided to use it for the cable parts of the gloves - inspired by Dawn's earlier Fetchings in two colours. So far, I really like the visual effect of the two yarns' different thickness and feel, it reminded me of autumn sea waves lapping at a soft, sandy beach (hence the title). Added 5 more stitches to these and some extra rounds on the "body" of the glove. Will post another finished picture when they're done!
