My first post in this section because I finally have something I'm happy to show off. LOL

First off is Fetching. I actually finished these over a month ago, I just never got around to taking a picture until this weekend when I was taking pics of my stash for Ravelry.

These were done with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a gray color. They were my first time making gloves so I made a few minor mistakes in the thumb part I think, but they look alright to me.

And here is My So-Called Scarf, well actually it's for my sister-in-law for Christmas. I used Malabrigo (yummy!!! :drool: ) in the Emerald Blue colorway. I am actually really impressed with how this turned out. And I'm happy to say that I didn't make a single mistake. :woohoo:

Now I just have to get to work on the other three MSCS as well as another scarf that are planned Christmas gifts. As well as pack and move by December 1st. :thud:

Hi Katie
I just love the fingerless gloves and you have used may favourite yarn.
Which pattern did you use? Could you share it please? x

Your Fetchings are great -- love the color! Don't you just love cashmerino!? And the MSCS is beautiful. Gorgeous colors! I made a couple of these last winter and I wish I'd used Malabrigo instead of the Manos called for. Yours looks so soft and warm. Great work!

You have done a great job on both of them. I'm so tempted to do MSCS but wonder, how many hanks of Malabrigo did it take you and is it a decent length?

Both projects look beautiful!!
On the MSCS, how did you get the side edges to look so even? I tried that pattern and my edges looked very sloppy... thanks

I used this pattern from Knitty. http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer06/PATTfetching.html

I only used one hank of Malabrigo. The scarf is about 4 1/2" x 52 1/2". It's not super long, but it's long enough to wrap it completely around my neck once and have plenty extra hanging down on each side. It's long enough for me. :shrug:

Pure luck? :teehee: I'm not really sure actually. All I did was tighten the first stitch for each row and then I blocked it using pins every inch down the entire thing. I was pretty impressed myself with how it turned out.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. It's really a boost to hear such nice things. :muah:
