Cablegram cablegram

Hot off the knitting needles

“A cable-knit piece of fabric
Cable knitting is a style of knitting in which the order of stitches is permuted.” ~from Wikipedia.

That being said permuting ain’t easy.  Well it gets easier after you do it 30 or 200 times.

This here’s a scarf I made for my sister Erika. She hasn’t seen it yet but I’m thinking she’s going to get hooked on the these memorizing cables. The wool is a terrific sea blue.  Aqua, actually. It is made from Ultra Wool from Peru – 50% wool / 50% Superfine Alpaca. Although a time consumer it was a pleasure knitting this item.

  1. Thank you. “To Cable” is not the challenge. The challenge lies in, keeping your count, marking your place (when you run to the phone or get a snack or change the channel) and keeping your place in the pattern. Discipline, some skill and loads of patience is key. I encourage you to challenge your skills but finding a pattern you can trust in, is essential!
