I'm so excited to be part of this KAL! It seems that there are people here both close to me physically and quite far away.

I've been a sock knitter for awhile now but only recently ventured into hand coverings. Funny...since my grandma always made mitts. I can't remember her making anything else. My mom always knit too, but mostly on straight needles. I remember being somewhat in awe of grandma's many needles and memorized mitt pattern.

My first foray into hands...Knitty's Fetching in variegated alpaca yarn. It looks nice (and feels great!) but I really think I would prefer this pattern with a solid colour yarn next time. The turquoise ones below look amazing!

    i think yours look very good, too:) i did same thing with my first fetching, i made them in variegated yarn, and cables were totally lost in them... but i just love that color, they look very comfy:) nice to have you over:)

    welcome, Sienna!!!!
    Your Fetchings look so soft!
    (okay, now you've convinced me to make a pair, too!)
    Crnaofca - did you knit the beads onto the cuffs or add them later?

    ohh.. beads are just bracelet i was wearing then.. but i guess you could knit them onto the cuffs, on CO row.

    hmmm maybe that's how I'll make mine, with beads on the cast on edge... I've never knit with beads before but I have tons in my beading room/office...
