Here in Houston, we’ve had a strange week. Or at least I have. For health and weather reasons, I wasn’t able to get a new collection of Blog Reader Specials done this week. Four days in a row of freezing temperatures, with a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow for part of it. YUCK!!!
But, there are some cool deals on the Blog Reader Specials page anyway, just for this weekend:

And while I wasn’t able to dye anything, I was able to work with the New England Wool I showed last week. My intention is to make this a scarf, but I may get burnt out on cables long before then, so it may become a cowl. 🙂
It is a reversible cable with a half-drop repeat. Because some people in one of the Men Who Knit groups on Facebook asked, I went ahead and wrote up a sort of “pattern”. It’s not a formal pattern for a specific finished garment, but just the steps for what I am making here. I tried to write it in a way that almost any knitter can adapt it for whatever they want — drop the side borders, make it longer or wider or narrower. For someone not utterly sick of cables, this would make an awesome baby blanket, for example! I included both a chart and row-by-row text instructions. If you would like my instructions, just send me an email and request it.
