Here's a tip...

If you want warm, sunny weather for an event like a picnic, outdoor wedding or such, just plan it for the day after I finish a toasty jumper. Results guaranteed.

It's like 24 degrees or something today.

Here's cabley, (Calista's Alexander McQueen Knockoff Sweater, see details in a previous post) basking in the autumn sunshine.
My first cables. They're a lot of work and they get a bit tedious after a while, especially on tiny needles and when the back and front are exactly the same. I used my new Boyes interchangeable circulars to do the neckband, and they weren't slippery at all on the 100% wool (Patons Fireside, by the way, I don't think it's made anymore looking at the website). I tried them on some cotton though, eeeeek, had my Denise's out like a shot.
