Working On Cable Knit Hat

Posted on | February 25, 2010 | 10 Comments

I started two new knitting classes this week. We are working on the red cable knit hat and fingerless gloves shown in the photo above. I was off to a good start on my cable knit hat when I realized on row ten I dropped a stitch in the second row. Crap. I had to pull it all out and start over. I could have probably done a fix but my ribbing was too loose. I decided to switch to smaller needles and give it another go. I am working in the dark gray yarn to the right.

My fingerless gloves are going to be gorgeous. I picked out a marbled gray, brown and cream undyed baby alpaca from Cascade yarns. I’ll share more photos as I move along with my projects.

On the left is basic garter stitch scarf for my sister. I made a hat to match. Hopefully, I will get the scarf done for her birthday!

Since we are talking knitting. I’ve been eyeing this beautiful baby knit book by Debbie Bliss at my local yarn shop. Gorgeous. I want to make everything in big kids sizes. And one more link. I totally want to make fingerless gloves in a beautiful Jade color like I saw over at Brora.

    I’ve always wanted to attend a knitting class but I’m so scared about attending one. I would rather if a friend went with me : P

    I love the hat you’re making. IT looks like you got a hand on the cable knit stitch!

    I love that one of my favorite bloggers is also a fellow knitter! The hat and scarf both look so cozy…we’ve certainly had some good knitting weather this winter, haven’t we? If you are on Ravelry.com, let me know!

    I love Yarn Over M-head! I’m a lifelong knitter and as such, end up with the knitting supplies that no one else wants. I have doubles and triples of many sized needles, so if you ever need any, please let me know! It would be easy to arrange to get them to you.

    PS – I hope that didn’t sound all stalker-ish!

    Hi Jennifer,

    I’m not on Raverly. All my friends at the knitting shop keep telling me about it. I have to go check it out.

    I love the cable knit hat! I am a confident beginner but I have never tried cables. That might be the best project to start. Also, I have the debbie bliss book, I have made MANY projects from it for baby gifts.
