Do you craft when you’re sick? I had the flu and I barely touched any yarn for a week and a half. My crafty inspiration came back with a bang when I started feeling better and I’ve started swatching for a new sweater.

I’ve always loved this cable from Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. I’ve had the page marked for years, but I never got around to doing anything with it because I found cables to be too warm. Now that I’m on my second year of living in old drafty buildings, I’m reevaluating that opinion. I’m thinking of running this cable down the center of a pull over. I might add a few more panels of cables or texture, but I don’t want to detract attention from this awesomeness.
