I have loved the Fetchings pattern from Knitty for a very long time. But, for whatever unknown reason it has taken me until this summer to actually make a pair. They are a fun and quick knit. They would make a great gift and are a wonderful way to honor that one skein in your stash that you aren't sure what to do with. This is also a great pattern for mastering new techniques: DPNs, Magic Loop, cables. By the way, I just love the shade of green of this yarn. It is kind of a cross between a kelly green and a lime green. Very pretty!
Project: My Fetchings Rav link
Needle: size 5 addi turbo magic loop
Yarn: a brand-less cone of Italian merino wool I picked up at School Products in NYC
