Look….cables! I also tried it on and it fits around my wrist:)
After my failed attempt at the Little Inga hat (although some friends said I was being too hard on myself….what, moi?!), I made an easier hat over Thanksgiving weekend. The “Felicity” hat. However, that didn’t turned out as well as I would have liked either. Too short again. It was so blah that I just left it in Ohio. Last night I decided that my next project would be something hard just to get practice. I would go for it and try cables (the twisting rows of knitting) since nothing was turning out anyway. There is a fingerless gloves pattern on Ravelry (the mecca of knitting/crocheting websites) called Fetching by Cheryl Niamath. You can search for most popular knitting patterns by category. Fetching is the most popular pattern for mittens/gloves. 13, 182 people have made this pattern and rated very high. Fetching has a lot of cables though. After a few library books and You Tube videos, I figured it out and stayed up until 1 a.m. working on my Fetching fingerless gloves. I don’t want to jinx myself…..but I think they are going to turn out! Have I found my solid-gold holiday gift pattern?!
