FO - fingerless mitts
I didn't really use one particular pattern per se, I sort of combined a few different ones and used the parts of each that I liked. The cable part is based on the Dashing mitts from knitty, and the rest is based on some other generic mitten patterns because I wanted a thumb gusset and not just the waste yarn thumb that the Dashing and Fetching patterns use. The yarn is some Red Heart 'McIntosh' from Wal-Mart, the colour is called grapevine. It's a wool/acrylic blend. I mostly bought it for the colours which felt very autumn-ish.

Ohhhhh!! Did you write the pattern down? I love those and would love to have the pattern! I've made one pair for Christmas, but I like yours better! Is that yarn worsted weight?

I'd love the pattern also. I love wearing gloves basically all the time especially because i essentully type for a living and it's nice to have my fingers out plus i like that they don't go much beyond the wrist.
