Cable Knitting

I just LOVE cable knitting!

At first I was a little intimidated by the prospect of manipulating another needle to achieve what looked to be complex cables, but after a couple of projects I realized how simple it is to knit cables.I found a SUPER CUTE dishcloth pattern on ravelry that is made to look like a tiny cabled sweater....Cabled Sweater Dishcloth Pattern

and then I found this Tiny Cables Dishcloth pattern (also on Ravelry) that is made using twisted stitches.Both of these projects inspired me to create my own pattern for a dishcloth. But then I went a little bit further and decided to make an entire spa set. I started with this Cabled Soap Saver and am knitting a matching headband and face cloth to complete the spa set. I will be writing up the final patterns this week and posting them here and on Ravelry.

The soap shown is a Diva Bar from The Soap Station. My mother is the owner and she has been making handcrafted soaps since 1999. This bar is in the scent Petite Cheri. I love this scent.

I am giving her the first completed spa set.

Happy Knitting:)
