For some reason the yucky weather we are having just about sent me over the edge. At least we are not getting the 10 inches of snow predicted! Searching for some comfort I spotted these on the kitchen table.
The pair of Fetchings I had finished just before returning to work. I used Lobster Pot Yarns Hand Dyed Cashmere. I ended up needing more than one skein of yarn, so to use up more yarn I lengthed the thumb by 4 rows and added a cable turn at the top. I probably could have used just one skein if I would have done one less cable turn at the wrist. There is just something about cashmere that is so comforting. And fingerless mitts are great for the cool but not cold weather we are having.
I wasn't sure what to do with the 3/4 of a skein of yarn I had left so I used Ravelry to find a pattern. I love that website! If you love Ravelry consider donating during Ravelraiser. I didn't realize that they were still operating in the red, and just yesterday were able to get out of debt! Plus, you might get a wonderful prize. You have until April 25!
Ok, back to my story. So I found this pattern on Ravelry and knit Ellen.
I love how the cast on edge does that swoopy thing, but not so fond of the top edge. I don't know if I will ever wear it, but it might make a good gift. It sure is soft, and I completely used up the yarn. Can't let cashmere just sit around!
Can someone tell my why my text changes after I put a picture in?
