Dashing fingerless gloves.

Finished Dashing Mitts

My first cabling project. Cables were a little tricky at first, but nothing to be intimidated by. And after a while fun to knit.

(Its hard to take a picture by yourself of two gloves in action. I finised these a few days ago. They are the ever-popular Dashing pattern from Knitty, knit in cascade heather yarn in the mallard colorway. )

I've worn these quite a bit around town, and they are nice and warm.

The different colored section of yarn in the above photo is the future home of The Thumb. You knit about 6 or 7 stitches on a 12 inch piece of waste yarn, then you slip those 6 or 7 strange colored stitches back on to your needle and knit them again. You continue knitting and finish the body of the glove. Then afterwards you come back, pull out the waste yarn and knit up the thumb on those loose stiches.
