I picked the Asymmetrical Cable Hat in Leigh Radford's One Skein book as my first cable project. I bought the yarn in February of this year because it seemed we were going to have a cool spring. I finally started knitting it at the end of August for my daughter Liv. The cables were surprisingly easy once I got the hang of it. The largest cable was 10 stitches and some of the stitches were a little too tight to easily knit. But I made it to the end and was very happy with the results. I wish the pom pom was a little fuller but Liv is pleased with it. I think she will enjoy wearing it this fall, in fact she's already been wearing it around the house, despite our record breaking heat wave.
I finally got my very busy pro photographer husband to take some pictures of the stocking I made for Olivia last year. I've started on one for him and I'm about one quarter finished. Calendar check...it's September and I've got loads of knitting and crafting projects to get done too! He keeps saying that he's going to have another Christmas with the ugly blue fuzzy store bought stocking. I can't let that happen!
