Fetching

I am starting to make the Fetching mitts (form the summer 06 Knitty). I have a few extra skeins of Cashsoft Aran since I originally bought a bunch for a sweater, but then had to change the pattern since I didn't think I would be able to make the gauge without drastically reducing the needle size resulting in a too stiff fabric for a sweater. Maybe the color isn't the greatest, especially for my skin tone, but it was on sale ($2 off per skein), so I couldn't pass up oin that. Plus this is going to be my first sweater, so what if I mess it up! (It's the Wrap Cardigan from Knitting Pure and Simple).

I love the Fetching Mitts pattern - it's something I've been looking at a LOT recently. Interested to see how yours work out.
