*Formerly Known as Fetching
These were the Fetching Fingerless Mitts from the Summer 2006 issue of Knitty.
I will reknit these with some changes.
First, I ran out of yarn. I used Knit Picks Andean Silk. 96 yards plus a couple of yards leftover from the Ms. Ida Chain Link Mittens I made last year. The pattern calls for 98 yards so I thought I would have enough. Evidently not.
Second, I’m not a fan of the picot bind off. The mitts flare out and I want them to actually keep my hands warm so I’m changing that to a regular bind off. A lot of people on Ravelry agreed.
Third, I messed up on the cable on the right mitt and didn’t notice it until I was almost finished. You can see the mess on the lower right on the top photo.
I’ll be on a mini vacation next week so I will be taking these in my knitting bag along with a few other quick and portable knits.
