My first non-rectangular project (Fetching)
I finished one of the Fetching gloves from Knitty. I thought for sure I'd have to give up (this is my first project after a basic scarf and an ipod holder) but it really wasn't that hard. Question, though---I was supposed to get 7 stitches on bottom and 6 stitches on top when I took out the waste yarn for the thumb, but I ended up with 8 and 7. I'm fairly certain I counted correctly when putting the waste yarn in--any ideas why this happened?

Uh can't help you either, but wanted to comment it looks great as well. In fact I'm planning on doing that pattern for my cousin as a gift with the same color you used. That wouldn't happent to be Lamb's Pride Wool by any chance?

Thanks! Nope, this is actually just Patons Classic Merino yarn that I had in stash. I didn't think I'd actually be able to make these, so I used it to practice using dpns and ended up finishing it :D

I sure love working with lamb's pride, though---I'm using some right now for a felted bag. Feels so good on the fingers
