A gift in progress

This is the type of thing that's been seducing me away from Jeanie. Quicker, manageable, attainable projects. I'm trying to have a gift to mail off in the next few days. I have completed one fetching, with a few modifications, including a thumb gusset. It's made of the soft and fuzzy yarn my #1Man brought me back from the market in Lima, Peru.

PS I just put the first fetching on the scale, and it weighed 23 grams. I put the remaining yarn from that ball on the scale, and it weighed 23 grams. I did knit the few rounds of the thumb from another ball, so in theory, I should be able to make it through this without running outta yarn. I hope!

What a beautiful color! I need to make another pair of Fetching. It's such a fun pattern. Did you ever work out a better cast off for the pattern? In the picture, your cast off looks perfect. I'd be curious to know what you did, since I was pretty unhappy with the cast off on the pair I made.
