Second Pair of Fetching Complete

I couldn't sleep last night... so I finished my second pair of Fetching. This pair came out so much better than the first. I cast on 5 fewer stitches, and knit two fewer rows before the thumb. This resulted in a much better fit. I also eliminated the picot bindoff. I liked the way it looked on the first pair, but it felt like too much extra fabric under my fingers when typing.

While knitting this pair, I started to really understand why what I was doing made the fabric look the way it did. Understanding that, picking up the stitches and knitting the thumb was much easier and turned out much better. I'm really proud of these.

Time to start my first sweater!
