Intro and Some Fetching

Hi All... Just joined your group and wanted to say hello, and then jump right in... I am a planning to make fingerless mitts in a multitude of styles for Holiday presents this year. My list so far includes Delicato, Fetching, Orchid Lace. Mosaic Mitts and Endpaper Mitts if I have time, and I am open to ANY suggestions...

These Fetchings are being made out of Blue Sky Alpaca & Silk in Plum and Kiwi. Remains to be seen if the 2 colour effect will work - the float makes a non-stretchy ribbing, which may be a no-go

I made the pair of these last night. They are a little bulkier than what the pattern calls for, but I had some left over Rowan Cashsoft Aran in the Savannah colour, and there was just enough for a pair of Fetchings. So, one pair down, many more to go before Christmas, but I am feeling uplifted by the ease of this first attempt... if all else fails, Fetching will rule!

I like your idea of the two colors... I was thinking of doing he cables of dashing in another color.
