Birthday Knitting

It was my darling husband's birthday a couple weeks ago and I made him some half mitts. The pattern is a Knitty Pattern called Dashing. It has several cables. I made these out of 2 skeins of Gedifra English Tweed yarn. It is charcoal gray with little flecks of camel. Quick knit out of nice yarn. If you start now you could probably knit a couple pair for your favorite people for Christmas. There is a women's pattern called Fetching. If I was going to knit a pair for myself I would still knit Dashing. It is much longer and I like the cable pattern more. To make it fit a bit better I'd cast on a few less stitches. It has a K4, P2, K4, P1 repeat. I would just use a K4, P1, K4, P1 repeat which would make it fit a little tighter.
