Rib and Cable Mitts

Rib and Cable Mitts

Well, I have finished the Rib and Cable Mittens from the Spring 2006 Interweave Knits. Here is Kaelen waving her pretty hands in the air for me. I made a few mods to the pattern, I left off the contrast color and the few rows of stockinette stitch on each end of the mitt. Kaelen didn't like the idea of contrast color and I didn't like the rolling edges. I also cast on 8 stitches less to fit her hands and moved the cable over one rib closer to the thumb gusset to keep the cable centered. It mostly worked, but the cable is still a tad off center, I'm not sure how to have fixed that without a lot more calculations than I felt this project is worth. Also, I left out 4 of the increases on the little thumbs. Turned out well, and she won't take them off, so yay!! The yarn is Elann's Peruvian Baby Cashmere in Tapestry Blue double-stranded.
