It's been a busy week. I didn't have a lot of time to knit. I did finish Fetching. What an easy pattern. In my opinion it's a classic glove design. The cables are divine and the picot bind off is so cute.
Here are the details:
Pattern: Fetching published on Knitty.com
Needle size: 6
Yarn: Alpaca with a Twist- Baby Alpaca- one skein 110 yards.
Color: 5004 it's the color of the cornfields in my area right now.
This is all the yarn I had left. It's the perfect one skein project. I am planning on knitting more for gifts. Next time I will bind of the traditional way just to see how it looks.
The thumb method used was very different than any design I have ever attempted. Basically you knit the thumb onto waste yarn. When you are finished with the glove you pull out the waste yarn and pick up the stitches. The first time I pulled out the waste yarn I was a bit concerned that I would loose my stitches. I found a great tutorial on this blog that really helped.
I leave you with this photo of the sunset that greeted me when I arrived home last night. I am always in awe of the works of the Lord. I know a lot of people are very concerned with our economy myself included. As I watched the beautiful sunset this scripture came to mind:
Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
