Confession: Until fairly recently, I was a cable virgin. I have a vague memory of experimenting with cables when I was younger, but I didn't go all the way. But then the other day I was reading Dogged which is one of my favorite blogs (partly for the knitting and partly because I am a sucker for a cute dog), and it was there that I discovered many versions of Fetching which were indeed fetching. So I decided to give the pattern a try. I've completed the left hand and here's picture of the right hand in progress.
