Fetching (gently modified)
I finished the Fetching fingerless gloves last night at Knit Night. My knitting friend, Paula, suggested I include a pair of those stretchy gloves to be worn underneath so the fingers can actually be covered. I think that's a great idea.
I added a couple of extra cable repeats above the thumb to cover about half the length of the fingers. I also added 1 x 1 ribbing to the thumb to give it a bit of length and so it wouldn't flare out on the cast-off edge.
I've been working on the Vent d'est Vent d'ouest Smoke Ring. I'm using the Diamond Yarns Alpaca Prima yarn I picked up at Romni on Monday. I bought 2 skeins but I think I'll only use one and just knit until I run out of yarn.
