Cable Crazy

So last week I finally took out my Stich n Bitch and figured out how to cable. I feel so stupid - there was no figuring - it's brain dead easy. Anyway, it's also fun as hell and now everything I do has to have cables -when will I tire of this? Am I doomed to creating Catholic girl garments for the rest of my life?

Why would there ever be anything wrong with making outfits for Catholic schoolgirls? No, you will never tire of cables, until you have to do a large scarf with several cables. Then you will get tired of them very soon.

Love cables! Right now I'm working on a sweater with a cable pattern I cribbed from a childhood blanket that my grandmother knit sometime in the 1950's.

I love cables. I made 6 Brooklyn Tweed Habitat hats over a 2 week period for Christmas gifts and I STILL love cables (Habitat is some serious cabling!). Of course, I enjoyed cables a lot more once I learned to do them without a cable needle. Ahhh . . . freedom!

The woman that writes this blog has several free patterns for cable heavy scarves.

Serious cable addict here as well, currently working on a jumper for my husband, a lovely heavy cable pattern form the 60's that my mother once made up for my father...

I knew one day I'd turn into her

I adore cables -- right now I'm working on a sweater-vest that's all cable. Two different patterns side-by-side repeated across the width of the panel. It's looking really great so far.

OMG, so now I'm powerless over cables. The thing is, would never wear them, they're a little too wholesome for me, but I love making them and it's good to see I'm not alone. Look out Catholic school girls.
