This is an exciting progress update... I have finished the left cabled fingerless mitts I started couple of weeks ago. I made some modifications which are documented on my Ravelry project page.
I still have to block it but I will do both of them together. I am very happy with how this one turns out and I think the second one won't take as long as I now know how to do the thumb gusset.
Can't wait to get the second one done now so I can use my iPhone & iPad on the train and still have warm hands!
