One of my professors has a sweater with cables on the sleeves and I kept finding myself distracted by it when she wore it. The cable narrowed and widened and I was fixated on how it was accomplished. I’ve been drawing it all over my notebooks and in my sketch book. I came up with my own solution using only cables. I finally got a close look at her sweater and was disappointed to see that her cables simply used increases and decreases. It wasn’t as clever as what I came up with in my not-so-humble opinion.
I finished knitting my cabled sweater in the middle of watching Thor and I didn’t want to run upstairs to get more knitting so I decided to swatch my little cable using leftover yarn. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this cable when I was drawing it on everything, but now that I see it knit I definitely think it has potential. I’m currently thinking of knitting something a bit like Miette but with a v-neck and this cable instead of eyelets. It will have a to wait until I finish the two tone sweater I have planned, though.
