dashing design feature

You know how if you make one mistake, it's a mistake? But if you keep making it, you can call it a design feature? These started out as dashing, but since I didn't have a printer, I just jotted some notes. It was just about where the cabling starts on the second mitt that I realized I'd screwed up done something different.

But I think they are ok. You can see that I did the cabling in the same spot rather than in two areas like in the pattern, and that I only did it once per cable round. Otherwise I pretty much followed the pattern... a couple extra rounds before cabling, a couple fewer between end of cabling and thumb. I did them in Ultra Alpaca, on size 4 needles, and knit the smaller size in the pattern.

I think they look great.
I'm always adding 'design features' to my knitted items.
I don't think I have ever 100% followed a pattern.
