I’m not sure why I thought that Rowan Cashsoft had more yardage than Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, but I’m glad I figured it out before I bought Cashsoft and ran short.
I “finished” one Fetching wristwarmer last night, after starting it late Monday evening – I say “finished” because I didn’t do the thumb yet (although I did weave in the ends). I want to finish the second one before I go back and do the thumbs; that way I can do fewer thumb rows if I’m running low on yarn. I did buy a second ball of Cashmerino, but I’m hoping I won’t need it. Perhaps it’s hubris talking, but I think I can probably get by with one ball.
Normally I’m skeptical of so-called quick-to-knit patterns (I’m looking at you, Last Minute Knitted Gifts – last minute, my ass!), but Fetching really is fast. I am hoping to have the pair done by the weekend, depending on how much time I have to knit over the next few evenings. It took me a little while to get used to doing cables Continental, but I think I’ve got the hang of it. Cables rule!
