I used US #4 needles and Caron Simply Soft Brites in Blue Mint, a bright turquoise.
The cable band was done first, it's from a Readers Digest book of knitting & crochet pattern stitches.
I picked up along the sides in garter stitch, with a long buttonhole for the thumb and a short-row gusset on the bottom pointing up toward the wrist to make the bottom wide enough. I hate seaming, so I picked up & made a few rows along the other side of the cables, then used a 3-needle bind off to finish it off. The bindoff lays along the pinky sides of my arms.
I've got a few days of vacation left yet to work up the pattern, then I'll submit it to Knitty. If they don't use it I'll put it up online myself somewhere.
