First Fetching

I have a feeling I'll be making more of these. I really enjoyed doing the cables. I wore them on the drive in today but they're a little slippery on the steering wheel. I wore them a little at work when the air conditioner wouldn't stop blowing straight down on me. They are so nice and comfy.

Pattern: Fetching by Cheryl Niamath
Yarn: Zephyr by Jagger Spun 50% Chineese Tussah Silk 50% Merino Wool
Needles: 3.75mm dpn
Technique: cables sans cable needle I did a regular cast off rather than a picot edge (bad knitter)
August 26 - Sept 1

I've also made progress on my Feather and Fan socks. I'm past the heel on the second sock and about eight rows up on the lace pattern so I'm farther along than what the picture shows.

Serious wife points have been scored. I got hooked up for a couple of tickets to Delbert McClinton. One of our very favorites. So after work tomorrow MFB and I head to Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts in Harrisburg. We've seen him here twice before and even though it's going to be a fast road trip and a late night, we know the music will make the trip worth while. Let's see, concert starts at 8:00 should be over around 11:00 then about a two hour drive home.

Gorgeous work on Fetching. The more I see it, the more I like the pattern.

Woohoo on the wife points. Just think of all the good stuff you can trade them in for. "Honey, I don't want to cook tonight, why don't you stop for take out on the way home?" or "Sweet'ums, I'm so tired, can you run a load of dishes?" or "Pookiebear, I really need enough cashmere yarn for that Michael Kors pattern in the fall Vogue Knitting that I want to knit for my wonderful blog friend, Twig" (who would wear the small size, btw, and deep green or white would be fine)

Fetching is a fun knit isn't it. You did a good job! I was thinking of trying a pair with silk...What does the Jaeger mis x knit like?
