What a "fetching" pile...

Just having one of those days...



(I can't photograph black.)

So I really wanted to make Fetching, the fingerless mitts from the current knitty....they are so nice and in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran...so luxurious.

The pattern calls for US#6 and I knit tighter than the "usual"...so I used US#5...
Yes, 5's...why? I don't know why...I should have used 7's but my brain was not functioning...
So then I decided to use 7's on the next one and then make two pairs...one a little smaller than the other.
The pair knit with 7's are looser than I would like...so I really should have used 6's.
Anyway...here we are, on the last one...praying that I won't run out of yarn...

Moral of this story:
Check gauge.

If it makes you feel any better, I wouldn't have either, not for such a small project.

I just finished my Fetching-they are drying now. I love those small projects! Can't wait to see yours done.

I also just made a pair of the Fetching yesterday. I'll be using a size 5 next time. Great color and yarn, btw.

Ah, very fetching ;)
It looks like they're going well.
