On The Needles

Cable FB Beanie
On the needles and nearly finished.

A girlfriend contacted me recently to tell me she was going to England next December/January and could I please knit a cable beanie and scarf for her.  Ooh I thought, something nice and chunky, because it will be cold in England at that time of year.  In white she asked.  Let's hope she doesn't fall over in the snow, lol.  Not chunky she said, just 8 ply.

Hmmm, it turns out.  Not as easy as I thought it would be to find white 8 ply pure wool that was somewhat affordable.  Luckily she was happy with cream when I asked for an alternative colour.

So here it is.  I can't say it is 100% original me because there are soooo many cable beanie patterns out there, but yep, this one is my design.  Like the Zig Zag Scarf pattern, I hope to put the pattern on my blog, once I work out how.
