Not quite so Fetching.

Sometimes it's really, really cold in our offices. Last Friday was one of those days. Poor Stella. Her fingers were freezing. So, I decided that, taking a cue from Uccellina and Annika , I'd knit her up a pair of fingerless handwarmers called "Fetching" from Knitty. It was a simple pattern, even though I went one less on the wrist cables, and I was done in no time. Then I tried it on. Even taking into consideration that Stella has smaller hands, I think something's wrong...

I'm starting over, with three sets of cables at the wrist, and I'm going to actually, oh, I don't know, CHECK MY GAUGE. Hopefully, I'll have them done before the next cold snap.

You are so cute it's painful. They'll work out for you. But if they don't, hit Uccellina over the head when she's not looking and steal her holiday edition of the Interweave Knits and try to make the "Cornflower Mitts" out of there. The pattern was really great.

I say hit Ucc anyway. Not enough to damage her, just a little bop upside the head. She needs that every once in a while.
