A pinch and a punch it's the first of the month Mrs Beez and it's time to make a start on those Christmas cards .... are you ready? Everyone else, I am sorry about that! Every year Mrs Beez and I say we are going to make a start on our Christmas cards in February and every year we leave it until December! You are very welcome to join us making an early start this year, I would love to see your creations. (Just leave the link to your blog in the comments section.)
But today it is all about knitting. I have always stayed well away from cable stitch in any pattern. I have tried it and failed. Recently my nephew asked me to make his son a particular pattern which contained a lot of cable stitch. I did not want to say no - but I have been putting it off.
There comes a time when we have to face up to the things which we are running away from - or something like that! As a trial run I thought I would try a pattern with just a little cable stitch. It is a Sirdar pattern - number 4179, which I made in King Cole Cherish speckly Double Knit.
