Knitty's "Fetching"

Originally uploaded by BoxerPixie.
On Friday night I saw one of the these gloves that someone else had made and thought they were so cute I had to give the pattern a whirl myself!

I learned two things with this pattern:
-- cabling
-- thumb gussets with waste yarn.

The pattern is so easy to read and these knit up uber fast. I made the first one in just a couple hours and then cast on and made 1/2 the second one while watching a movie last night. I just finished up the second glove this afternoon in about an hour.

I'd like to experiment with using beads in this pattern -- and make myself another pair in the cashmere/merino I was oogling on Friday night.

EDIT: I used Encore yarn, a wool/acrylic blend.
