Fetching Update

I loved knitting this pattern and I almost finished them this past weekend. I RAN OUT OF YARN! It is my fault. I used #5 dps instead of the #6 specified. I couldn't find my #6 dps. I know knitting with smaller needles makes a denser knitted fabric therefore using more yarn but I thought it wouldn't be that big a difference. So, I didn't have enough yarn to knit the thumbs. My solution is to frog them both and reknit them (I will enjoy knitting them again) with my #6 knitting needles.

(I found my only set of #6 dps in the closet still in the decreases of the toe of a Christmas stocking)

Especially for Robin/Anonymous - Fetching is a free pattern through Knitty.com. Look in the Archives under the mittens and gloves section.
