Before anything else I want to stop and remember Margrit from Morehouse Farms who gave so much to our fiber community.
She passed away this week and will be missed by many. Here is a link to their newsletter: http://mail-dog.com/page.html?p=0000015Fu8vj7oAT4s0QaEieIptqiHfyF8&email=Debbieduck1223@gmail.com
CABLES * CABLES * CABLES * CABLES * CABLES
I seem to be completely hung up on cables; you could say I am on a cable binge ;) !
Block Island Hat
Remember, we sell the kits at The Knitting Garage in Rhinebeck and I am giving a class on this especially for those of you who have not worked from a chart before. You can take the class on Wednesday November 18th or Saturday November 21st (10am to 12 noon on both days).

After I finished the hat I went on to knitting cables in the Idlewild Tunic.
I wore the tunic on one of the days during the S&W weekend. It is very comfortable :)!

And as soon as the Idlewild was finished I cast on another TWO projects which have cables:
I also could not resist buying an Aran Cabled Cardigan from Ireland at The Clothes Tree in Rhinebeck.

With the back all done, I cast on the sleeves which I will be working two at the same time.
Elementary Watson Socks
|you can't really see all the pretty cables on these :http://ravel.me/Strickliese/tma|
The yarn which I found in the clearance bin at Stickles (quite a treasure trove!) has 10% cashmere (!!!) in it. It is the Anzula Squishy (80% Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon).
I feel that such a nice yarn deserves to be knitted up in a special pattern. Since my husband and I both enjoy "Sherlock Holmes", I decided on the "Elementary Watson" socks. This is a free pattern on ravelry.
