Go Fetch!

Yay for Summer Knitty and all the wonderful patterns therein! I finished Fetching in time to wear them in the artic cubicle.

Pattern: Fetching from Knitty Summer 2006

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Merino Aran in burgundy. The pattern called for Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, which has the same gauge as the Merino Aran. I used about 1 1/3 balls, although the pattern only called for 1 ball. The pattern has you use a smaller needle to puff up the knit, and perhaps the yarns scrunch differently.

Needles: Bamboo #6 dpns

Fun level: 9 (10 when I think about wearing them)

Notes: Others have pointed out that the cuff and bind-off curl, but I like that. It makes a pretty petal of some otherwise chunky gloves.

Action shot and bonus doggy face! Sorry that the photo is a tad blurry, but obviously it was not my fault. And I am not torturing the poor doggy, I am giving him face-pets, but the requirement to sit was apparently torturous to him. Poor Pooh Bear!

Oh, gorgeous doggy...and the gloves look great. I was thinking about doing them in much the same colour. After I finish the seventy gazillion other projects I have waiting of course!
