Friday Finished Fetching

I'm STILL reading 2 weeks worth of posts from all of your blogs. Thank goodness for Bloglines for keeping track of it all for me.

I thought I'd share one of my favorite photos from vacation. It doesn't have anyone in it, but I thought it was a decent photo (since I suck at photography) of our visit to St. Maarten. I think next time we visit this island though, we'll go check out the French side (St. Maartin) since the Dutch side (St. Maarten) isn't worth a second visit in my opinion.

Okay, now for some knitting

Pattern: Fetching from Knitty.com Summer 2006 issues
Yarn: Berroco Pure Merino in the Cabernet colorway
Needles: KnitPicks Options size 5 US circular needles (2)
Notes: I didn't like the picot edge in the pattern (looked weird to me, although now I'm thinking I just may have done it incorrectly) so I did a standard bind off. I've said it before & I'll say it again - this yarn is delicious! I wish I would've used the size 6 needles, but I didn't have two sets so I used the size 5 instead.

Gosh, those are so cute! I have not made fingerless gloves yet but have been wanting too. Those might be the right ones for me! Great job.
