I've seen the owl cable on sweaters and hats and I felt pretty sure that I could figure out how to put it on a fingerless glove. (since I couldn't find a pattern) I still need to find some tiny brown buttons for his little eyes. And still have to knit the left mitten. But this was a really quick knit, fun and I can't wait to wear them. I'm slightly pleased with myself because this is the first thing I've knit without a pattern. Who knew I could do that?
