Salt & Pepper Cabled Thing – Second Progress Report

I’ve slowly been making progress on the cabled “thing.” It looks like it might work as a hat now, which makes me happy.

I’m on the third cable repeat. I’ll probably be knitting more than the 4 repeats specified in the pattern since it’s looking a little short.

As always, I have another cute Eva picture to share.

Here she is chewing on Mr. Octopus’ hangerdoodle. She’s been directing a lot of things to her mouth, now, including Mr. Zebra’s butt. (I got that on video for future use when she’s 16 years old.) I’m on the lookout for signs of teething, but it’s still quite early. I think she’s just exploring. If she follows in my footsteps, she won’t start teething until she’s 14 months old. 🙂

Salt & Pepper Cabled Thing – First Progress Report

I started another knitting project on a whim after finishing my second Intuitive hat.  This time I’m doing what may turn out to be either a cabled hat or a cabled cowl.  The pattern calls for casting on 126 stitches for the brim, and in my experience, that’s quite a lot.  I don’t know if the cabling is supposed to pull it in, but I doubt it.

I’m going to see how wide this thing becomes before doing any decreases.  If I deem it too wide, I’ll continue knitting straight and add some ribbing at the top for a cowl.  It’ll be a scratchy cowl, but a cowl nonetheless.  🙂
