Turquoise Fetching

You may think, dear reader, that I haven't been knitting anything at all since I haven't posted in two weeks. But you'd be wrong, my friend. I've been knitting like wildfire, and doing about a million other things (like this, for example - the first and last time you're likely to see me in a suit).

Here you see a pair of Fetching (Fetchings?) in some wonderfully soft turquoise Malabrigo worsted. This is actually the second time I've knit this pattern, but the first time was probably two years ago and I gave them away without taking a photo!

I did make some mods to the pattern. I knit an extra repeat of the cable both at the cuff and at the fingertips; I added a couple of rows before starting the thumb, after the thumb, and on the thumb (details on Ravelry) and I bound off in purl to give a little gartery goodness on the edges. I love them!

Those are pretty! I love that blue color! I always make my fetching (s?) longer too!
