So this is my cable cushion in Wendy Thor Super Chunky. Knitted over 20 stitches - I used the Clover Cable needle. I have to say that the Wendy Thor yarn is very quick to knit up, and would be a wonderful project if you have never tried cable before, and would like to give it a go.
I do love cable, it's such a lovely stitch to use. The cushion only took me two days, so christmas pressie for the family here I come. (I hope they do not read this) Also so many lovely colours to choose from! The one I knitted I think I will give to my mum, now it's just trying to decide on what colour to do next....... oh so many to choose!!!
And here is the finished piece. x
So after the mad rush to finish my daugthers cardigan for Christmas, which still to this day she thinks aunty knitted it for her. (thought she would never wear a cardigan knitted by mummy) She has seen me knit for my friends little girl, she asks one day can you knit me a cardigan mummy, of course I can if you would like one, I reply. My loving daugther's reponse was, I would love a cardigan because you knitted it for me. How can I say no.
Not really going to help me finish all of my UFO's, but then either is working with new yarns and patterns in the shop.
This is knitted in Wendy Pampas on 12mm needles, lovely and quick to knit up. The pattern is straight forward and could be the next step on from scarfs. Pattern number. Wendy 5317.
Brand new for Autumn/Winter 11, is Stylecraft Luxury Wool Rich DK. A 100g ball with 51% wool.
The colour range has 12 wonderful colours. My favourite one has to be 2467 Citrus
Welcome to Pack Lane Wool's new blog.
We are very excited about sharing our projects that we are knitting and crochet, also the wonderful yarns and patterns!
