View Full Version : FOs: Lots of Fetching & Dashing

06-14-2007, 10:19 AM
This is my first time to post FOs, so bear with me while I figure this out. I made the first pair of Dashing for reading in bed in the winter, because my hands get so cold!! They were my first cable project and first time to use dpns. Loved them so much I made the Irish Hiking Scarf to go with them. Then I got the idea of making Dashing and/or Fetching for all my sisters & nieces for Christmas. The scarf and most of the gloves are Merinos Otto in various shades. Also a couple of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. The green Fetchings are Sublime cashmere merino silk aran -- beautiful yarn!

Slim, any chance my name is on your Christmas list?? :lol: Those are really fantastic! All of those projects are on my list of things to make for this winter. I hope mine turn out half as nice as yours, they all turned out beautiful!

How did you like the Cashmerino?

I like the Cashmerino -- it's very soft and just a pleasure to work with. But I have to say I loooove the Merinos Otto. It's even softer and the Shadow colors are gorgeous!
