Best Cables Book
I love doing cables and I've got a B&N $60 gift card so I was wondering what would be the best book to get.

I have both the Vogue & cable untangled- the Vogue shows more of different cables.. but the other shows patterns.. I love them both... (*is that called enabeling? )

I can only vote for Cables Untangled because I"ve not looked at the other 2. Sorry.

I'm making the afghan on this books cover in a pretty pale yellow.

I have the Cables Untangled and the Vogue Sticthonary one and I am completely in love with Cables Untangled. There are patterns in the book - for clothes & home - and also many cable stitches in the back that aren't part of a pattern.

Although, with $60, you could get both!

I've not seen the Viking Knits....but I know others love that one too.

I'm being super helpful here!

I bought Cables Untangled but haven't done any of the patterns inside yet. I had to have the book though because of the pattern for the afghan and all of the different cable patterns in the back that you can use to make whatever. I haven't used it yet though because it's all a lot of charts and I haven't figured out how to read a chart yet

Wow! My mom wants me to make it for her, but I told her no because I'd be seaming it together for years. I'll probably surprise her with it for xmas though.

I prefer the Barbara Walker Treasuries (1 and 2) for cables. They are $32 each at Knitpicks. :D

Thanks for the advice. I went to B&N and I got the Vogue 2 because that was the only cable book they had and I like it but I'd like to get a book that has more Celtic cables. I've still got plenty of cash left on my card so I think I'll go to the B&N near work and see what they've got.

Nadja, you know that you can use that gift card online too. The only downside is you pay shipping, but it's worth it to have a bigger selection than what may be in your local store.
