Fetch this


Yes, it's that ubiquitous little pattern, Fetching. It took precisely one skein, I didn't need my little leftovers I had waiting and ready. I didn't like the picot edging, so I did a traditional bindoff, and am not happy with it. I can see why a picot bindoff is used, the top will flare out anyway. However, I want the top to hug my hands, so I will be pondering how to modify for next time.

Yarn: Colour 4 Me
Pattern: Fetching from Knitty, Summmer 2006
Needle: Addi Turbo circular size 7
Cast on: Oct 1, on a school bus
Cast off: Oct 3, while watching SMiLE.

I had the same problem with the pair I made. I used a traditional bind off, and I wasn't happy with it. I thought about going down in needle size just for the bind off, if I make another pair, but I don't want it to get too tight, either. Let me know if you come up with anything. Oh, and I love the color!
