Oooh! Fetching!

Just in time for the freezing temperatures I woke up to this morning, I have my Fetchings complete. Fetching 002Fetching 003 I'm thrilled with the way they turned out. Nice and snug, long enough to cover the gap between sleeve and wrist (and then some) and comfortable to type in. As I am right now. I've been wanting to make these for some time now. I needed a replacement for the muppet gloves I made last December. See? Voodoo Wristwarmers Jim Henson would be proud. My co-workers make fun of me when I wear those. Mainly because they think I'm a wuss for wearing them in the middle of summer but dammit - I HATE AIR CONDITIONING! At least when it's set to arctic temperatures rather than as a comfortable relief from the heat outside. But I digress. I have my Fetchings now and I dare anyone to make fun of these puppies. I'll punch 'em with my Cashmerino-ensconced knuckles. Fetching 008 Then of course, I'd probably be arrested for battery. In which case I will stylishly ward off the paparazzi. Fetching 006 Upon my release to a sympathetic public, I can start my own broadway show and my jazz hands will be quite, well, fetching. Fetching 005 But don't criticize my broadway performance, else I'll have to go back to the beginning and give ya the ole one-two punch. Fetching 007

Those are really cool, turtlegirl. If you decide to make any more and give them as presents, let me know, and I'll send you my address! ;-)

He he he... I like your photo series. Those look great, I like them better than the originals! I too am an air-conditioning "wuss" (I SWEAR it's colder in my office than the rest of the building) so I feel your pain.

I love those.

But 1 minor complaint: Not enough boobage.

LOL!
All kidding aside, your FO is lovely. Now go knit me a pair.

Can't wait to see your slacker butt on Saturday - yay!

You? Are a lunatic. But, that's why I love you to death. =) And they are quite lovely, speaking as another hater of overdone A/C.

See you Friday!!! Yay!!!

Sarah said...

Very cool Cristi!

And nice photo-shoot! heee.

I like the jazz hands shot the best.

Very nice Fetchings, but I really wanted to comment to say that you have gorgeous fingernails!

necia said...

Those are awesome. Very nice. Now I would wear those, I'm not ever wearing my 1 fetching I made. It will be frogged.

See, now THOSE are hot! way hotter than the muppet ones! I have to make them again!

Who's your manicurist??

Sarah said...

Great photos! I snorted a bit when I came to the paparazzi one.

And your Fetchings came out great. I really like the longer cuffs.

Dulcedosa said...

GIRL! YOU SO CRAZY!
Now, I have to make me some fetchings, too.

*grumble* I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!

Startitis be damned!!! *curses*

Dulcedosa said...

OH YEAH! PRETTY NAILS! I agree. Now, you're going to have the fingernail fetishists stalking you. *evil grin*

Did you know there's a fetish for braces, too?

I wonder if there's one for cool eyeglasses....

Donna said...

Oh, I like!!! Love the photo series, too.

Jerry & Maxy said...

They are quite fetching indeed! So are the nails.

Sourire11 said...

very pretty.... I like your modifications alot. I'm wearing my fetching's now but the curly picot edge keeps getting in my way as I type!

Bezzie said...

Hm, I don't know what's better--the pattern modifiations or your modeling? Ha ha!

String Bean said...

I think it's safe to say that you're a goofball. Welcome to the club.

Areli said...

They look great, I love the color.

Elisabeth said...

Gorgeous!! :-)

Adam said...

Great fetchings, I've been thinking of making some as a gift for a friend.

And I think that you could also use those very sharp nails to poke the mocker's eyes out, that could be as equally enjoying as punching them. And then you wouldn't get your lovely wristlets all dirty with who knows what's on someone's face...

cookie said...

Haha, I love your poses! The jazz fingers made me think of the spirit fingers from Bring It On. I admit it, I loved that movie.

Nancy said...

Those Fetchings are great! And the nails!I thought I was nuts for doing the things I do with nails! Geesh, just watched your vid about the row counters,,,,, you make bending wire look to easy!

Given me some ideas tho,, since I've been making stitch markers as of late!

JRS said...

Your Fetching are just that! Good job! I received a pair made from CashIroha in the One Skein SP swap, and I love them! I'm wearing them as I type this. I can totally relate to your wanting to have them in a chilly office.

Ali said...

Those are beautiful! Christi, you are turning out to be quite a trendsetter. Your talents are numerous. :)

Mary, Mary... said...

Those look great! And I love the color. OK,they're on my list.

Jen said...

Too funny... I love the running commentary on your FO pic and the Fetchings look great!
