Cabled Fingerless Gloves

February 5, 2007
From Tabitha Knits…

Here are a pair of fingerless gloves I just completed – this makes 16 FOs for 2007. The construction is very “sock-like” and I love the clever way of adding the thumb. I like the look and feel of a real thumb much better than a thumb slit. Took a bit of frogging (especially since I saw fit to make two right hand gloves instead of the more traditional right and left gloves). My model has smaller hands than I do so they fit me much better and consequently look better on me. But I never managed to get the nack of wearing the gloves and operating the camera with my teeth, nose and eyebrows. This was my first attempt at cables as well as my first attempt at thumbs. I am pleased with both. Again forgive the flash glare on the sheen in the yarn. They really are prettier in person.
I am planning to repeat the pattern in a wool – as soon as I decide on the color. Any suggestions???
