I didn't start knitting until the beginning of this year so as the new season's catalogues are hitting the doormat filled with winter woollies, it's a whole new and exciting experience - I'm no longer looking for things to BUY, but for inspiration for the project queue! When I put together my Year of Projects list in June, I'd planned to make these Fingerless Mittens so I could try knitting cables, but The White Company catalogue arrived on Friday featuring these little beauties and I seem to have changed my mind!
This evening I found a cable needle in my knitting 'kit' and had a go. In no time at all had made my first simple cable based on this coffee sleeve.
There are several patterns that I like including One Cable Mitts and Slouchy Cable Sleeves (and so many more on Ravelry), but I may just try making it up myself. I'm quite excited about it and am now deciding which yarn to order - I really like the idea of pale grey - maybe an alpaca/merino yarn would be suitably yummy.
Not much progress on the other YoP items, but I'll tell you more about that next Sunday. Hope you all have a great week!
