Well, last night I finished Fetching and I am very happy with the results.

Cast-on: December 12, 2006/ Finished: January 24, 2007
(Basically I made one and then made the other a month later- so about two full days)
Pattern: Fetching from Knitty Summer 2006
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran- Black
I used one ball and began the second ball with about three rows left. I’m not really sure what I’ll do with the remaining ball of Cashmerino Aran, but I will find something to do with it.
Needles: Clover Takumi DPNs 4.25 mm (US 6)
Modifications: Knit 8 rows after final cable twist, instead of 4. Then I used the traditional cast-off instead of the picot bind-off: it was too floppy for me.
Thoughts: I really enjoyed this pattern and I will definitely knit them as gifts in the future. They are quick, easy, and oh-so-fetching!! The Cashmerino Aran is so soft and feels great against my hands.

    Your fetching gloves are great! I just got some yarn to knit a pair for myself.
