One Fetching Down, One To Go

Alright, I could not stand it anymore...I had to make some fingerless mitts. Everyone else was doing it...

I decided that I would try to make Knitty's Fetching. So far, I only have one to hand to show. I just finished the one, this afternoon. I will begin the second one, tonight probably. I am feeling rather proud of myself. This is my first attempt at cables in the round. Also, the thumb part was a first for me, too. I was sweating and nervous when it was time to remove the waste yarn. One slip...and that would have been the end of my glove.
The yarn is Rowan Wool Cotton (50% wool, 50% cotton) in # 955 Ship Shape. It's sort of a dark teal color. Me likey!

So, there you have it...I have proof of knitting. My ongoing projects are still that, ongoing. UGH! I hope to finish the second glove by tomorrow, or so. Toodles for now...

Great job & congrats on the cables. I absolutely adore teal (black & cranberry too of course, lol) I'm so torn between the Fetchings & the Knucks as far as my next pair go. Hmmm.

Love them!

Start on your second one soon and don't fall prey to the same disease of finish one and not the other-itis like I have!
