Hat for my nephew, mits for me. Both are Paton's Classic Wool.
Both I just made up in my head, as I went along. The mits have a crocheted border.
Thanks for looking and commenting. Happy New year!

( The bulge under my mit is my bracelet!)

That is really fun! I love the gloves. I've never gotten the courage to try something cabled, but that might just inspire me. They're lovely!

Cabling really is simple! I don't even bother with a cable needle.
Thanks alot! I really hope you'll try...you'll say "Wow..is that all there is to it?!"

Thanks...The hat had me worried, that he wouldn't like it because of so many cables...but he put it on as soon as he opened it, and didn't take it off all day.

Wait, how did you do cabling without a cable needle? Would you mind explaining? I'd love to avoid going to buy another needle   Cheesy

First of all, I love the projects, especially the wristlets.


Raycheezy and Punk is the New Blog:
I am presently working on my first cabling project, the irish hiking scarf, and I use a dpn for cabling.  I find the scarf a good project for a first time cabler.

Irish Hiking Scarf:  http://www.helloyarn.com/irishhikingcarf.htm

How to cable:  http://youtube.com/watch?v=7nKglAmgZJo

At the end of the Irish Hiking Scarf it explains how to do the cable for that particular project.  My only problem is the last three stiches I knit in the cable on the cable row, they are very tight and hard to knit.  I don't know if that is normal or if there is a better way for me to go about it.  It is still so cool to do.  Definitely try it.

Wow, thank you for the websites. Cabling does look simple. That hiking scarf looks so neat! Oh my gosh! I think this is going to completely distract me from my english project! Smiley

I'm guessing in the video on cabling she is knitting continental style, but I do the cabling english style.  I don't know continental style.

I love that hat and the cables...could you write down how you made it?  Love that color also.

When I say no cable needle..I mean NOTHING.
Not a DPN...I just let the stitches hang. There is a tutorial http://wendyknits.net/knit/cablelesson.htm that is more or less how I do it. Not identical, but the same idea. It really moves things along time wise.

Myklia: the tightness of the second set of stitches is very common.
It's not just you.

Oh...I didnt see the last comment..Yes...I could try to write it out from my notes.
The hat...I used some unconventional methods with, but I could give it a go....though I fear people would think I was nuts at some points.

I like the way the cables decrease at the crown. It makes the top of the hat as interesting as the rest!

Wow! You are quite talented.  Of course I have only been knitting for over a month, so I am easily impressed, but I think no cable needles would be impressive for anyone.  I can imagine my stitches that hang off unraveling.  Thanks for letting me know the tight stitches are common.  It is worth the pain (my wrist still hurts from my recent fracture, even though I no longer have a cast on, so it hurts my wrist to do those last three tight stitches).

LOL..if it's weird enough for me to actually write it down...

No..see, what's odd is that I had to combine three different types of cables...and the first part of the cabling stopped abruptly..and looked weird...so I made up a way ( which I cant say I invented..I have no idea if anyone has done what I did.)
But I had to fix the sudden ending...how I did that was strange.
Also, I dilberately made the cable go the wrong way at one point...to get a sort of flame effect.
The mits are odd because I made a WIDE thumb gusset.
I'll try to write them down...I have the pattern/recipe in my head...and the odd things about them written out.

I like your hat!  And the mitts are nice, too.  Such a pretty color - they look so soft & feminine.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*
