Cabled up with Care

I love knitting cables…right, left, braided and woven. They add depth and interest to a garment, and add extra warmth as well. And in a climate such as mine in central Canada, that is no small consideration.

For Christmas, I received the book Aran Knitting by Alice Starmore and it is well worth the read for lovers of cables. In her book she details the history of Aran knitting and provides many beautiful and timeless patterns. I haven’t started any yet but I’ll get there one day. In the meantime, here are a few cables in my history:
