Cabled Mitts

Here are my Cabled Fingerless Mitts using the Briar Rose pattern and yarn (1 hank Earth Song).

The color is true to the yarn:

Notes: I followed the pattern exactly with the exception of casting on 8 fewer stitches than called for (I am pretty small boned). I also put the thumb opening one repeat (i.e. 4 rows) sooner than the pattern called for. I didn't think the sleeve part needed to be that long.

The yarn was so soft. Perfect for the mitts. I'm delighted.

Here's a closeup of the small cable pattern (and even a bit of straw for authenticity):
