Oh ya, I love cables...

The Must Have Cardigan is just my kind of knitting. Interesting, yet straight forward. Once the cables were set, it's just straight knitting until I get to armhole shaping:

The upsizing seems to be working so far. I'm getting about 44", which is what I had hoped for. Fingers crossed it will be enough for the sleeves too.

Hmmm... is that green? huh, who would've thought that I would be making it in green? Actually, it's a greyish green. I missed working with this kind of cables. Lately I seem to either be working with high maintance patterns (meaning I actually have to follow the pattern) or really simple projects (like lots of 2X2 rib or straight st. st). It's delightful to be back to my "comfort" knitting.

I haven't forgotten about the Brooks Fiber scarf:

Did I mention how lovely this yarn is to work with? I love the pattern too. Wouldn't that be cute as a baby blanket (not in the Wool/Silk yarn. That wouldn't be fun to wash).

So that's the plan for today... I'm probably going to work mostly on the Must Have Cardigan, with a little game playing mixed in.

Happy Knitting!


  1. I thoroughly enjoyed knitting Must Have. Easy to memorize and interesting. I might knit it again in a cotton blend.

  2. The cables look beautiful!

    I'm really interested in the Brooks Fiber Scarf pattern, but don't see a link that gets me to the pattern??
    Can you help??


  4. Hey Cindy,
    I've fallen in love with the pattern of the piece you refer to as the Brooks Fiber scarf. I've looked and looked but can't find the pattern anywhere. Is it a pattern that you would share or tell me where to find it? or how to buy it????

    Please help I so want to try this wonderful scarf!!

  5. Sorry this has taken so long to respond (between a vacation and me ignoring my blog, I'm a bit behind on responses!)

    The pattern is from Scarf Style and it's called "Midwest Moonlight Scarf". I know the stitch pattern can also be found in one of the Barbara Walker stitch dictionaries, but I don't know which one (or what she calls it).
