Very Fetching...

Does one fingerless glove count as a finished object?
I finished my first Fetching fingerless glove. I'm so happy with how it turned out! Look at those beautiful cables! Sorry, I still find cables amazing!

I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a dark blue. I lucked out, because it was already in my stash. The stitch definition of this yarn is perfect for this pattern. It's funny, because I didn't think I'd like this color (and to be honest I didn't really even want to use it, because of that), but I am really happy with my results. Also, this is a really really (did I mention really?) quick knit.

For needles, I used Crystal Palace 8" bamboo that was a 4.25mm. I was concerned that the pattern called for 4mm needles, but I could only find a 4.25mm in Crystal Palace. I decided to risk it anyway, and there was no problem with using the slightly larger needles.

I was home from work again yesterday and today. I went to the doctor yesterday, and she figures that I just have a mild flu. I will definitely be back to work tomorrow though. I'm feeling a bit better tonight.

We're still enjoying our new little kitty.

Here's an overhead shot of him. He's really very social and well adjusted. I think he really thinks he's Stu's cat though. They hang out together. Redd sits on his lap, and sleeps with Stu at night. Our original kitty still sleeps with me, so I don't feel too left out.

Oh yes, it definitely counts as an FO, and it's so gorgeous! I'm way impressed by your cabling, I wish I could do it so neatly and evenly as you did! Great yarn you used too - I've already placed that pattern high up on my "Have to knit" list!
Oh, and I adore your little kitty, what a cutie!

Your Fetching is definitely fetching in that beautiful blue. Those will go great with jeans. I have a darker blue in the queue for just that reason. But, it's not going to show the cables as well.

You must count that as an FO. Remember Michael Jackson? (Ok, we don't really WANT to remember Michael Jackson, but he did make it fashionable to go around wearing one glove.) If only we could make it fashionable to wear one sock. That would take care of my second sock syndrome. :-)

Also, isn't cashmerino just glorious stuff to work with?
