Cable Overload

It’s quite possible that knitting three cable sweaters at the same time was not the most brilliant idea I have ever had. Ya think?!

I’ve taken a couple of days off from the Saddle Up pullover. I am knitting a sock, in the basic cuff-down traditional style …

… and some of Cat Bordhi’s Family of Fingerless Mitts, worked in garter stitch. This is not mindless garter stitch – Cat Bordhi didn’t do mindless – but they did take my brain somewhere else. It helped to settle me down.

This is a photo from her book Family of Fingerless Mitts. I have already given the pair I knit away.

Now I’m up for more cabling.

I’ve joined this Saddle Up in the round. It’s for my son and I should probably try this on him. I may have to work some decreases for his hips. Definitely not what I have to do for my own pullover, sigh.

This is my pullover, also joined in the round now. You may notice that it is not as far along as my other two. What’s that all about?!

There is also nothing wrong with knitting this Saddle Up sweater flat. This is a little 2 year size. Knitting the sleeves means the finish line is close. All the edges are in garter stitch so it will be easy to sew up the sides.

I’m afraid there is no Christmas knitting going on here. How about you? What are you up to?

Cheers, Deb

  1. That indeed is a beautiful sweater. I see the pattern says you can do it in any weight yarn. I’m not sure how that works unless there are stockinette areas to fill the sides of the cable pattern. Looks like you have to seam the sides and arms. Haven’t tried a seamed sweater yet but will do someday.

    1. This is a recipe, not a stitch by stitch pattern. I give examples of what I have done with the cable patterns I have included in the pattern. Each knitter can play with them and come up with their own unique sweater. It’s an adventure.
