intended project for January

Happy belated new year, everyone!

Thought I'd drop a line and let everyone know that I've finally decided what my Do Something New project will be for this month: learning to knit cables without a cable needle!

I will be making a sweater from the Gathered Pullover pattern from Interweave Knits' Winter 2007 issue:

The cable pattern doesn't look too taxing, so I'm hoping to be able to manage it by the end of the month. Am starting tonight. Will be using some form of Rowan Cotton that I got in a swap.

I first read about this in Melissa Leapman's Cables Untangled (which has some lovely patterns and is a really good resource for anyone wanting to learn about cable knitting). Grumperina also has a helpful tutorial on this topic.

(Anyone who is really bored and who doesn't usually visit my blog is also welcome to check out my general To-Do List for 2008.)

Wishing you all great health, wealth and creative fervour in 2008!

Great sweater! I want to learn this too, then I don't have to learn to knit cables...or...
By the way, are we the only 3 left in this KAL? Pretty silent here,and the host is gone too.. Well, keep up the good work ladies - we will stay to the end!

I think we might well be the only three left, Tone! I guess everyone else has learned everything already... ;-)
