Fetching Gifts
I made two pair of Fetching's from Knitty.com for my two college roommates (Never mind that they were my roommates 20 years ago...) I always try to give them small and similar gifts. I used Debbie Bliss Cahmerino as the pattern called for. The photo makes the purple look more plummy- but it's really a dark sophisticated purple. The green is a dark forest green-a Christmas sort of green.

It is dificult to photograph 4 fingerless gloves with only two hands availabe but I tried.

Thanks for looking.

Love those. I'm a bus driver and those look like something I could really use. Was the yarn expensive? They're beautiful and just love those colors too!
