Technickety: How to unvent a simple cable I had a heap of messages asking where the cable for Jeff's glove came from. It's a fairly generic multi-strand cable; called a "Saxon Braid" (thanks, Purly White!). I see Wendy at wendyknits has used it for a sweater, and I'm sure it's to be found in stitch dictionaries. That said, being able to read an existing cable and knowing how to reconstruct it is a very useful skill. I'm not suggesting, of course, that the following be used in any way that takes credit away from a designer of a garment - rather, this is a reference for understanding how a simple cable works and how to write a chart.

Bathtub Dreamer » knitting Luna Capelet January 11th, 2009 | Link Luna was my Christmas Day knitting. Though the style is a little unusual for me, I love the picture in the book: the yarn, not so much. So I knit it from two strands of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport, which I had purchased from eBay. I like the way this turned out, but I did a couple of extra repeats of the lace pattern that I think now I did not need. The one time I wore it, it kept slipping down my arms.

Right now I have a few skeins of gray lace-weight yarn (I know — shocker!) and two skeins of this madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Robin Red Breast (420 yards/384 metres).
Lace Knitting Patterns Lace knitting is sort of addictive, and is sometimes considered the pinnacle of knitting because of its complexity. Lace knitting is ideal for making girly and pretty clothing and accessories as the delicate designs look amazing on scarves or shawls. Lace may seem difficult, but it’s actually easier than you think! Don’t let it intimidate you.
Firefly Bias Scarf Last month, I wrote about some of the linen yarns that we carry at the shop. When we received the Classic Elite Firefly, I was struck by the beautiful colors and the interesting texture of the yarn. I took home a few balls of the steely gray to play with and a sweet little stockinette bias-knit scarf was born.
