I can't believe the weekend is over! I have a finished object to show you!! I am probably the last person in the world who didn't have a pair of Fetchings, but now I do.
They are a pretty almost navy color. (And I took this picture while at a stop light, not driving. That's my story and I'm sticking to it) It took just a yard or two over 1 ball. I'm thinking about shortening the length by 2 rounds and making a second (and third) pair out of the same yarn. Love the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran!!
A couple of questions for those of you who have done this pattern before. I have average sized woman hands and mine are a little bit big. I'm considering taking out 5 stitches for the next pair (casting on 40 instead of 45). Has anyone done this modification for theirs??
We had a good weekend. Had a blast with the kids. LittleGirl had a fun time with spagetti!
We found out on Friday that our plant will be taking some "market downtime". Two and 1/2 weeks for hourly employees and fortunately the salaried employees will still work. For now. Hubby is an hourly, so looks like he's going to be Mr. Mom for a little while. Employees can take vacation time if they have it so that they can get paid, but I feel so sorry for some of our hourly workers. This economy sucks and I think it's here for the long haul. I'm so frustrated that our country is in this mess and it's scary too. I have no idea what the solution is, but I hope it gets here fast!
Hope you are having a great day!
