Knitting cables is fun.

This is Elliot- a pattern I've been knitting now. It was published in a supplement to the November 09 issue of Knitting Magazine that M. sent me from London. When I saw this pattern for the first time, I knew strightaway I wanted to knit it. The pattern calls for quite expensive Rowan Colourscape Chunky yarn; I'm knitting it with cheaper but still nice Sirdar Tweedie Chunky.

It's my first cable project and I find knitting cables not as difficult as I thought. Actually, it's kind of fun.

I have modifed this project a bit- I omitted ribbed edges because C. doesn't like them. I do like the result so far but I'm so slow with my knitting that I almost feel embarassed...


  1. I think it looks terrific! I like your yarn choice, and it looks like something a guy will actually wear. (I love cable knitting. Give it a little while. I think it will grow on you.)

  2. That looks amazing! Your cables are perfect! I have always been too afraid to do an adult sweater because it seems like it takes so much TIME!!! I'm proud of you and love the yarn and pattern you have chosen! I can't wait to see the finished project =)

  3. Wow, I love the man in the sweater as well!
