Thanks for your repiles everybody. I am just loving knitting cables, it's so fun and easy!
Ingrid, for some reason I can't see the pics you posted. I'm on dial-up though (ugh), although the page says that it's done loading...that happens a lot on this forum, but I bet they look really great.
Thanks for the link to that shawl, Sarah, it really does look nice. Yes, the yarn I was looking at had pretty short variations, so I think I'll use it for something else. I can see that with longer variations in the colors, though, that cables could look quite lovely.
And at some future point, I'd really like to see what malabrigo is all about...
p.s. Ingrid, the pictures loaded this time, I can see them, and they are awesome! So pretty.
