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
