Fetching mitts, just begunBoy, that was fast.  I started Fetching mitts on Saturday night (and I had quite a time getting the stitches joined in the round — it’s been a while, and everything seemed upside-down and backwards), and I finished the first one Monday morning.  (Click on those photos for big; I’m still kinda working the kinks out of blogging images with my new computer, and I haven’t hit on an appropriate image size to use consistently.  Besides which, the pictures would take up a lot more room than the text on this one.  I think I need a new layout.)

first Fetching mitt This second photo has truer color than the first — it’s a raspberry color (Crystal Palace Creme, color 13, wool/silk, unfortunately rumored to be discontinued) and I LOVE it.  This pattern is great, and just what I needed — quick gratification, simple to knit but not boring, and quite pretty when done.  I don’t think I love the picot bindoff specified in the pattern, though — I think I’ll use a couple rows of 1×1 ribbing on the next pair instead.

Also, there is a huge gaping hole under the thumb where I had to pick up stitches (only on the one side, though).  This is a chronic problem for me, happens on every pair of socks I make.  I would welcome tips or suggestions from any knitters who are reading.

I have to go grocery shopping.  Adam says, “You forgot that you were typing that thing until 8:30!”  As it is now 9:12, I think I’d better get cracking on my Tuesday. :)   Y’all behave.
