Why, indeed! Don’t you look Fetching!

What an awesome pattern!  This was a gift for my Aunt Denise (who bought me some AmAzInG stuff for Christmas, btw) and it was quite genious to knit.

Pattern:  Fetching from Knitty
Yarn:  Knitpicks Ambrosia (20% Cashmere! and 80% Alpaca) – plently less than one ball
Needles:  US 6 dpn (Clover bamboo, my fave needle of choice, I’d say!)
Time to  knit:  About one day for each one.  The second one was finished on Christmas day, hours before it was to be opened.
Mods:  I skipped the picot cast off and just bound off in pattern.
Notes:  This is definetly going into my repertoire as being an easy and impressive knit for gifts.  I’ll be stocking up on Ambrosia here and there with my KP orders to be ready to go with some at relatively little notice.

    Lovely! I can’t wait to take a stab at a pair of those (which I plan to mod to make much longer). 🙂

    Hey, those look amazing! I have been dying to try making them and now I think you have inspired me to actually do it. You knit such awesome stuff!

    those look fantastic! I’ve definitely got a “must knit those” decision. Once I finish my current UFOs, though.
