FO: Fetching as Hypnotics

I've figured it out.

Every time I knit a piar of Fetching, I forget to change the direction of the cables on the second glove. This most recent pair, I even left a note for myself on the pattern.

Nope: C4F, both times.

As we know, knitting in the round is in fact a spiral affair. Adding cables just adds mini-spirals to the larger spiral.

And what do spirals upon spirals produce?

That's right: hypnoses! I'm simply not in control.

(That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)



pattern: Fetching, by Cheryl Niamath, from Knitty Summer '06 (free at www.knitty.com/issuesummer06/PATTfetching.html)
yarn: Knitpicks Swish Superwash (100% superwas merino wool, bordeaux)
needles: size 7 dpn
made for: my boss
notes: I cast on 35 instead of the prescribed 45, and they fit perfectly. Don't ask me, I just know they fit perfectly.

You're supposed to switch the cables?

I've never knit these but thanks for the heads-up (if I don't forget either!). They're pretty -- maybe your boss will give you a raise.

Don't think of it as a mistake, think of it like a unique design feature. They still look great!
