After I completed block three of the Art of Knitting series, I had a go at cable. I got some cheap cable needles from the Op Shop and a $2 ball of 100% wool. I think they worked out OK for a first go.
My main purpose for the knitting drive at the moment is I want to make myself an Aran jumper. I used to have a really nice one but it got wreaked and I've wanted another ever since. The only way I will get one is to make myself one. Now that I know I can do cable, I am keen to have ago.
