I made Fetching for Laura’s birthday present. The yarn is Moda Dea Eclipse 60% extra fine wool / 40% nylon in Linen (2551). I had to do several modifications to get them small enough to fit her 6″ wrists. I used size US 5 needles. I also only cast on 40 stitches (instead of 45), which got rid of one cable repeat around. I did a 3″ thumb gusset instead of following the pattern’s thumb instructions.

  1. Hi kris,

    Your work is awesome. I came across your blog and I
    enjoyed spending a little time this morning reading
    about your projects. I love knitting and crochet myself.
    I think you do some lovely work. I think I am quite a
    prolific crocheter and I do a fair bit of knitting on
    my knitting machine.

    Well, I just had to let you know that I have an e-bay
    store and I sell mostly clearance yarns at prices that
    will not be found in any other store anywhere. Since
    you do knit, please visit or tell your friends. My
    store is Designer Knits and Crafts. Check out the
    wedding dress that I crocheted which is also up for
    sale in my store.

    Be immensely blessed and I wish you long, long
    pleasurable hours of knitting.
