What is it about autumn that screams CABLES??
I’ve had a thing for little, warm knit vests-things since knitting Nightingale
in spring. There is something so lovely about being able to throw on something sleeveless to add a cozy bit of extra warmth on a chilly day. I’ve been thinking about knitting Jared Flood’s Redhook
, which I have had in my queue for months now and would be the perfect project for my squishy/hardwearing Wimbledon
– 100% SW Merino sport, but something has been holding me back.
Then yesterday I was reading Karen (aka the ‘Sweaty Knitter’ and designer of Yarn Pro
)’s great blog
and she posted a link to Bonne Marie Burns’ Elisbeth Cardi
which I hadn’t seen before and made me go – hmmmmm! I think what has been missing is… CABLES!
Does anyone else find that they start to crave cables around autumn? Every year around this time I start to want a textured, cozy something that looks like it was knitted for a fisherman…but in much softer yarn for my delicate sensibilities (ahem)! ;-P
I started thinking I would add some cables to Redhook, as I already have the pattern, but then I saw Cerisara
by Bonne Marie Burns
…and my hoarding brain turned back to Wimbledon in the Tournament colourway!
How cute is that? And the cables used on this look very similar to the ones I used on my Toasty Friday, which were simple twisted stitches…*drool*.
And of course the Brooklyn Tweed Fall 13 collection has just gone live this week and I couldn’t help but see this cabled beauty,
by Veronik Avery…and I JUST HAPPENED to have ordered another kilo of this scrumptiously squishy BFL/Alpaca Aran
this week! Gulp. A thick, soft, squishy superwarm cardi that wraps high around the neck…in maybe a semi-solid rusty brown…?
So many cables, so little time! What’s a girl to do?
What cabled goods have you queued recently? Can I see?
