Here is the 2nd pair of fetchings. I cast #1 on 12/31 and finished #2 01/02 :) Very fast and very fun. I am using stash yarn to make them, and the top of them are about the same color as the couch, so you can't see them all that well. But you are able to see the nice cables on the bottom. I modified the pattern a bit for this worsted weight yarn, instead of 45 stitches, I cast on 30.
Here is what is left of the stash; I can use this to make more pairs. Why all this stash knitting?? Well, myself, along with lots of Ravelry friends, have joined the 2008 Burnin up the stash group. No buying any new yarn for projects, until all the stash is gone....wonder how long I will last? I do have quite a bit of yarn; mostly for socks...must find other uses for sock yarn.
Time to clean the slate and start fresh for 2008:
I knit 18 pairs of socks (can you believe it LaurieC???)
I knit 20 misc. other projects
I read 48 books, WOW, that is almost a book a week! (I am currently reading T is for Trespass, so that will be the first finished book of 2008)
I had 152 posts last year!
And, I learned how to do the following:
make socks :)
turn a heel (I LOVE IT)
make a short row heel (not so much love)
how to make cables
long tail cast on (goes with socks)
cable cast on
how to follow a pattern with a diagram
how to modify a pattern
3 needle bind off (or whatever that is that you use on the Fiber Trends clogs)
I am so proud of myself.
