I joined the Sexy Knitter's Club Knit-a-long for this quarter.
Instead of doing a particular pattern, they are going with a technique.
The winner is cables, so I decided to start the SweaterBabe Chic Cables and Lace Cowl. The rules
is that 25% of the item must have cables, and I think that cowl is big
enough to count! I'll also be doing the longer sleeve version, so there
are cables on the sleeves as well.

I've already begun it using my
Cascade Cloud 9 that I purchased for the Fitted Knits Elizabeth Bennet Cabled Cardigan, but decided not to make because of the Puffed Sleeve fiasco.
It's basically the same sweater, just with longer sleeves and some
cables. Anyway, I'm using the Cloud 9 doubled. I'm loving this yarn!! It's so soft and seems to be doing really well with the cables.

After completing one and a half repeats of the cowl, I realized that I
was doing the cable all wrong. I blame, oh, me, since I didn’t really
read the directions since I wanted to get right to knitting it. So, now
I ripped back and have gotten back to having completed one repeat (12
rows). At least the cables look like cables now!
