My Cable Obsession and Free Cable Patterns

Good Saturday, loves!

So this has been a hectic week with all of the renovations STILL going on! On top of that, we’re STILL waiting for a stove… Luckily, that stove is coming this week, and I can finally start cooking at home again. I’m so over take-aways and salad! Don’t get me wrong, salads are great, and healthy, and are wonderful on hot days…. But I’m missing the process of cooking, and experimenting with recipes, and just plain sitting down to a hot meal…

On top of all of that, we’ve had a change of plans, and will start re-packing everything again… That deserves a post of its own!

On the knitting front, I’ve started The Vacation Knit, and although I was a little apprehensive, since it’s my first cable project, I’m doing very well. I did choose this one based on the fact that it looked like an easy knit. And the pattern is easy to memorize, as well. So I can pick it up at any point and continue on.  I feel as though I could be making faster progress with this, but again, with all of the renovations and packing, I’ve been distracted.

But now I can’t wait to finish so I can start on some other cable patterns I’ve found! Am I going to share? Of course I am!!

This first one, Nennir, (below) is inspired by Celtic knots. I’m IN LOVE with this one! I’m also loving that this pattern can be easily made into a larger scarf, or even blanket. It’s knitted flat, which will help with the cable work.

For a hat option, this Quick Cable Slouch Hat, (below) is a perfect for Fall! I love that it’s simple, but looks difficult! This would be beautiful knitted up in a “fall-ish” color; I’m thinking an orangey-red.

The Fisher Cable Hat, (below) is great for the man in your life. Also simple, but the detailed edging makes it interesting. A quick knit, for a last minute gift! I’m thinking a great weekend project for my honey!

Oh, this one would be so cozy, sitting next to a fire in October! (It would probably take me that long to knit it up!) Aidez, (below) got a 4.4 rating on Ravelry, and the difficulty is just under medium… Hmm… I think I’ll give the above projects a go, before embarking on this one! But I can’t help myself, and will probably take up the challenge sooner (and then won’t be done until December)!

Well, there you have it! My obsession with cables is getting the better of me, and I think I may have to grow another pair of hands to complete all the projects I want… :::sigh::: Well, I was warned that knitting was going to take over my life… I just didn’t know how much! And I love every minute of it!
