Finally cast on Friday night...Fetching Mitts from Knitty. I am using some leftover Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton I had in Tomato. As soon as they were spotted by my friend's little girl, she requested a pair in purple. When I explained it may take me a few days, 'as soon as I finished this pair' she decided red was okay and could make do with these. It took some convincing, but she is going to wait for a purple pair. I love these #6 circulars, I originally purchased a pair of them to make the fingerless mitts from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. They have come in very handy since then.
