KAL progress and Cabling without a Cable Needle

On Monday I mentioned that I was starting a new KAL featuring  Simone’s lovely cabled  Yuletide Scarf.  I had truly planned to use my newly acquired skein of Liberty’s Yarn in Sockenstein for this project realized I need more of an Aran weight yarn.

After going through my stash, I came across five skeins of  King Cole Merino Blend Aran that I had left-over from my  Atlantean Wrap and Bag.    While I haven’t had too much time to knit this week with other things going on I thought I would share a tiny progress photo of what I’ve done so far.  I must say this yarn really shows off the cable pattern and it’s so soft!

This pattern is super quick and easy to knit, which makes it perfect for gift giving.  I have also being knitting without using a cable needle. If you’ve never knitted without a cable needle, there are a few great tutorials out there to teach you how to do this technique and once you learn, you’ll never use a cable needle again!

Here’s my list:

Happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting everyone!

      I think the cables are popping too Kristi – maybe it’s the color! I really love not getting stuck with a cable needle – makes knitting cables much nicer :)
