Yarn Along: Cables!

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along this week.

Wow, I can not believe that it has been over a month since I joined Ginny for her weekly Yarn Along.

I have been so busy lately that I stopped knitting for several weeks. When I finally picked up my knitting, my husband said, "You must be feeling better because you are knitting again." I was feeling better and inspired to try something new. I decided to learn how to knit cables. I found an easy pattern for a single cable scarf, and then I watched a short video at I could not believe how simple it was to learn how to knit cables. 

The book I have been flipping through is Family Feasts for $75 a Week: A Penny-wise Mom Shares Her Recipe for Cutting Hundreds from Your Monthly Food Bill. Mary Ostyn is a mother of 10 children. In her book, she gives tips and recipes to help you save time and money in the kitchen. So far I have two charts and  nine recipes dog-eared. I am not finished looking through it yet, and I am sure there will be more recipes that I want to try.

Please visit Ginny and the other talented ladies that link up with Yarn Along.


  1. loving that cable, gorgeous colour yarn
    book looks good too

  2. I just learned to knit cables too - it is much easier than it looks. Very nice scarf. I noticed the purple bag that you knitted in another post - did you use a pattern for it?

  3. That books sounds good - we are a family of 9 and food is our largest expense.

  4. Ladies, thank you so much for your kind comments! :)

    Ellen, I did use a pattern. It is in Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'n Bitch The Knitter's Handbook, pages 170-171.

  5. Knitting cables is on my to learn list for this month so I am glad to hear it's not as hard as I'm making it.
    Your knitting looks so pretty!

  6. Tracey, I know you can do it! Thank you for your sweet comment. :)

  7. That pattern is gorgeous! Very cozy and really nice texture.

  8. Great scarf. I just learned cables too. I'm just reserved the book at the library. Thanks!

  9. That IS gorgeous! I wish I could sew/knit whatever you do. :) I love cable knit.

    Let me know how you like that book. Sounds like a nice budget cut, although right now we're close to that. But we're a family of FIVE...half her size, right?


Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a friendly comment! :-)
