Cables? YES! The more the merrier. This piece is the hottest thing in my wardrobe these days. It's springy, soft and feels so good on the skin. I was happy to have it a few weeks ago when we had a 9" snowfall. Wore it to fill my bird feeders and walk the dog. I… Continue reading Alcova Scarf
For a cold weather trip to Beufort, NC back in December - brrr.... what were we thinking? Beaufort is a quaint gem of a town kind of frozen in time. So many historic homes, they're all white, and the annual holiday home tour is a real treat. The pattern is the Gingerbread Hat by Angel… Continue reading Charcoal Cabled Hat
Don't you just love cables? I sure do! I have no idea why either. I've made the Plaits and Pines hat before, so you may have seen it already in my Ravelry projects. That time I held yarn double, but never again for cables. It made things more fidgety and slowed me down a little… Continue reading Another Cabled Hat
Just some pinches of cables in a delicious worsted weight wool. Just 2 skeins of Malabrigo Yarn Rios (dreamy) and this was a great project for flying and waiting around in airports. I forgot how fast worsted weight projects can be!
LOVE cables and just about anything that has them. This pretty pattern was actually fun to make. About the time you're bored with the garter stitch body, the edging starts and it's kind of fun to do, so it went by faster than I expected. The yarn is acrylic Kraemer Yarns Perfection DK, so it's… Continue reading French Cancan, CABLES!
We were headed to a grown-up's birthday party, with whiskey in mind for our gift, but wanted to wrap it in a unique way. Found the Cable Knit Wine Cover and Scottish whiskey needs a sweater, in my opinion. The first try was an off-white one from Cascade 220 "Superwash" which felted. I like to… Continue reading Well Dressed Whiskey
Pretty yarn and a very nice pattern called My Dolphin Cowl. Love the picot hemmed edge, it's worth the extra work. They scrumptious yarn was Baah! La Jolla, in mystique. I used just under 400 yards, maybe @380.
LOVED this cabling pattern - very relaxing but not so much that it was boring. It was a free pattern on Elann.com, Coin Lace and Cable Wrap by Shui Kuen Kozinski and the yarn is Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool, 717.0 yards (655.6m) went into this and it took near 6 weeks working on it daily.… Continue reading Shawl of Coins & Cables
It's true - Zoey is a free house elf now! Since we moved the sofa away from the front window to make room for the Christmas tree, we have let her roam free a few times when we go out. Here is our sweet little Miss in her pink sweater.
Completed this morning a test of the Solme Cowl, soon to come out from Cindy Dell. I just love all the cables and how beautiful it looks in Australian Merinos yarn by Filtes King. I sure have a good size stash of this stuff, so I was happy to find something worthy to make from… Continue reading Solme Cowl test
