Burgundy Fetching Fingerless Gloves

Not much crafting going on in these parts.  Somehow there are too many other things to do and I'm exhausted by the time evening comes and my eyes don't want to do anymore close up work.  Hoping this is a temporary lull, but we'll see.  Maybe it's also due to the new Verizon Fios Triple-Play installation that has me playing with the TV more!

I did manage to knit a new pair of fingerless gloves from the "Fetching" pattern that I love.  I thought I had lost my favorite purple pair, but I found them again after I was half-way through knitting.  No problem... I can always use another pair.  These are made from Paton's Classic wool in burgundy.  A little snug, but they 'fit like a glove' as the saying goes.  I'm sure they will stretch some as well. 

The wristwatch does actually have a face and hands.  The camera just couldn't see them.

Hope the stitching bug will return soon :)
I thought of you the other day while doing the grocery shopping... I found my first altoid tin!!! Ok, it was full of mints but I finally could picture your finishes... they are much smaller than I thought :)

Love your mitts! Very nice! Sorry you've been in a lull. These things happen. Enjoy your new Verizon Fios! (We have it too, mainly because I want Tennis Channel. lol!)

I always seem to have less energy in the evenings after the time changes each fall, Annie. And now I'm battling jet-lag after being in San Diego recently... Anyway, your new gloves look so pretty and that color is perfect. I am so allergic to wool, I'd never be able to even touch them, but they are so beautiful to look at :)

Enjoy your Triple Play!!

What a pretty color for those gloves. My favorite running jacket when it gets cold has finger holes in the sleeves to keep your hands tucked in. I can't stand once my hands get so cold that I can feel it in my bones.

Those look like a very nice thing to have and they are very pretty, too!

Very pretty, Annie! I don't find a lot on t.v, but I have gotten stuck binging on Netflix. : )

Very nice color! I actually knitted a pair of Fetchings too some time ago. Forgot to take a photo, though. Seems like I'm not into blogging anymore...
