Aw shucks

Today I gave a tutorial on crochet cables at my crochet guild meeting – not that I’m an expert, but since I have been working on my Solas Caomh I guess I have the most recent (or only?) experience with them amongst the group.

I did up a couple of small samples, a left crossing cable:

and a right crossing cable:

and wrote up the pattern and some notes for everyone.

I think it went ok. I hope so anyway! And I received a lovely thank you gift:
Teddy’s first knitted hat! (I am slightly embarrassed not to have made one for him myself … but now he has one!). All the ladies at guild are very excited, as this is “their” first baby too! It’s very sweet!

  8. Crikey crochet cables – didn't even know that was possible! Nice to catch up with what you've been up to and looking forward to the big reveal!

  9. I love the crochet cables. It amazes me how nice they look. It's not a technique I associated with crochet.

  10. I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that you baby is going to be SWAMPED in handknits… which is only as it should be!

  11. now that's a true baby bonnet – gorgeous!and love the traditional J&J's soap. have you tucked it amongst his clothes in the drawers yet, to make them smell powder-y sweet? it's divine!

  12. Well done, they are certainly lovely cables so they were lucky to have you teach. Isn't the present so cute!

  13. Aren't you clever – and weren't you good for Yarnadan – unlike certain other non-bloggers who failed miserably…..

    The cables look so good & I can't tell they are crochet. I must learn to do that. Love the little hat too.

  15. I never knew you could crochet a cable. You clever!
