After viewing patterns during the Christmas season, I noticed that cables were everywhere. My sister found a scarf in Walmart and said, "Hey can you make this?" I looked at her like she was crazy and replied, "Yes but it would take some work." We moved on. Then when I went to work, I searched online (just to see what was available) for a crochet cable scarf pattern. I was able to find one and then I became frightened. Well, guess what??? I jumped in. That's right I am working on my first pattern containing cables. It's the Hooded Baby Sweater from www.freepatterns.com I love it. One of my assistant headmasters just had a baby girl so I am planning on gifting the set to her or adding it to my completed project bin. I'll post a picture in a few.
