Potpourri of Knitting

This weekend proved more challenging than I thought. I had planned to spend the weekend relaxing and knitting. How does the saying go, the best laid plans? One thing happened after another and before I knew it Sunday night was upon me and I had not picked up my knitting. GASP!
Obviously that needed to promptly be corrected. I put the boys to bed and picked up my Amrha'n Gra Sweater for DH and worked the ribbing. I would have gone farther, but DH chose to learn to cable.
Here is a photo of DH's very first cabling project. Yes, he is knitting socks for me and as an added twist, the pattern he is using has cables in it. After over a decade of me trying to convince him he would enjoy cables, he is finally doing them. I am not certain he is as passionate about cables as I am. Although only time will tell.

Finally, more yarn arrived! The Cascade 22o is gorgeous and will be used in my Irish Hiking Scarf challenge. I cannot wait to not only see, but feel how this yarn knits up.

The ribbing looks good! I can actually see the cables (good photographer) And the socks look like they are done in the same yarn I am currently using for cabled socks! That yarn for the scarf looks luscious as well. Luv seeing your stuff. Keep posting.

Hey Jen,

Everything looks great! Looks like I have the same Opal yarn for some socks too! Go Steve go...cables rock!

Thnaks Bev and Carol. Steve just frogged the sock, and is going down two needle sizes. I will post an updated photo hopefully this weekend.
