Last Saturday, I learned how to Cable...it is so easy and fun...I have to say this again...being a brand new knitter...I am amazed at all there is to knitting. I love it! I am so excited to learn new things. I finished one fingerless glove and am working on the left hand now!

I also bought some mmmmmmmmmmmalabrigo from Fabulousyarn.com in Velvet Grapes Colorway and am starting the Irish Hiking Scarf to have some practice on those cables. I already have cast on, because I wanted to see how it felt and it is WONDERFUL!

I've been very blessed to have a great group of ladies that are meeting at our LYS on Saturday afternoons to knit...today, we are going to a coffee shop to knit...should be fun! I LOVE IT!

Have a great Saturday all,
Merry :muah: :muah: :muah:

Great! Once you master them, you won't believe all the things you can make. I like knitting cables, too!

I love cables! They are so fun, good for you in learning them!
I love the simplicity of them. They look so complicated, but are so simple and beautiful!

Be careful knitting cables in Malabrigo, I heard they don't turn out very well in that type of yarn...

I haven't yet learned cables, but I am not a big fan of cables. Not my style. I have seen some incredible cable work on here tho. It looks so daunting.

Isn't it great that cables aren't nearly as hard or complex as we make them out to be??

Good for you for learning something new! :hug:

Cables "look" soooo difficult, but they are soooo easy! I love doing cables! Well, for the most part! LOL!

When I am knitting, I always wonder what made someone wrap yarn around two sticks and start interlocking the loops together--I'm always amazed!
