OK, I’m going to tell you right off the bat that my pictures are going to suck tonight. My camera is acting up – not sure if it just needs batteries, or its on its way out. But I didn’t want to wait to show off….so I used my iPhone…
Anyway – I can’t believe how fast I finished these – and I love them. I actually finished the pair Sunday night – that’s right – the same day I started them.
I can’t tell you how much I love the yarn – its amazingly squishy and soft. In fact, I’ve been stalking it on eBay hoping to a really good price to buy enough for a sweater….its just amazing. And the pattern – OK, I know – I’m gushing a bit – but I was just so pleased with the pattern – its a quick, fun knit, and I learned how to do cables without a needle. I’ve worn these to work everyday this week – even though its really not that cold here. And I’m wearing them right now (creepy and gushing – great combo!). Although I swore that I would not do Christmas knitting this year – I’m thinking that maybe I’ll make a few pairs for the women on my list….or maybe I’ll just make a lot more for me.
But since I started this whole thing to make Cieara a pair….I had to start hers…
The yarn is the yarn I got from the Knit One, Tea Two swap – I really wish I could geta better picture because it is just gorgeous. Its DK weight, so I’m using US 3’s, but the same pattern – and it fits Cieara so I’m happy . Since I just started these this morning, I think I’ll make good progress on them too – but probably not as fast as the first ones.
I’m working from home on Thursday (yea!), and was scheduled to be off on Friday for an extra long weekend (one of the advantages to working for a bank is that I get off on holidays now, so I’m off on Monday – Veteran’s Day!). But a last minute meeting was called on one of my projects, and I’m torn as to whether or not I should take the day off (new job and all – probably a good idea to show them how motivated I am, eh?). But we’ll see – I hope that something happens and I can take the day.
Hope you have a great rest-of-week! Maybe I’ll have a second pair of Fetching to show you!
