Squirmy Cables

Hello! I'm very glad to join this knit-along!! I'm interested to see how the colors and other variations change the character of Japel's design. I love the spectrum I've seen here: the pallet of greens, sunny yellow, blues of all shades. I'm working with a blue-green New England Highland wool, a rather coarse and irregular yarn, which I can't seem to photograph with any fidelity. I misread the cable pattern upside-down and with fewer repeats. I'm not so sure that this was a happy accident, as the cable has an uncomfortably squirmy look, but I haven't the heart to frog at this stage. I hope I don't regret this! In any event, I look forward to reading about other people's Forecasts!

Yeah, love the colour, and the texture that your cabling has. Maybe the mis-reading was meant to be?

That color is just stunning! The yarn seems perfectly suited to the pattern, and I like your bobbles just the way they are.

I like your cable! It looks just as nice upside-down.

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern. It will be soon!
