Fetching in "Forget-me-not" Colourway

Of course I have enough skeins of each colours, but I love this colourway. I call this "Forget-me-not" colourway.

Yarn: DiaEpoca col. EP345 (left) and EP330 (right) 1 skein each
Needle: Size 6 (3.9mm) DPNs
Pattern: Fetching

As already written, the fabric is so soft and cosy. Cable stitches are crisp. It would be nice to knit a cable pattern sweater or cardigan in white or ecru.

I really enjoyed knitting this pattern. It's quick and easy, but very "fetching." I mean, "Fascinating." It is suitable for a gift especially when you knit with luxurious yarn, such as wool and silk or cashmere blend.

I've already started next pair.
The Second Fetching
I knitted this with Olympus James Dean Avenue. Olympus produces and distributes yarns have "James Dean" and "John Lennon" in part of their names.
Anyway, Olympus James Dean Avenue is made of 80% wool and 20% silk, and 77m/40g.
The fabric is denser and heavier than that of DiaEpoca, and also more prickly.
I prefer DiaEpoca. If I knit this with DiaEpoca again, I would make it a little bit longer.
