Cable Crazy!

Got a bit upset and angry today when some idiot students started laughing at me while I was knitting on the bus. Grrrrr not nice! Well, I just have to keep telling myself that they are very sad and stupid not to appreciate how wonderful knitting is.
October is the month of cable knits. I've made several things for birthdays all involving cabling and I'm ruddy pleased with them.
First up Lizzy got a Beret and scarf for her birthday.
Doesn't she look beautiful!!!!!
I bought some nice yarn from St Nicks Market - a super chunky wool acrylic and alpac mix. Just the right colours for Lizzy.I made the beret using this pattern - http://mathgirl40.blogspot.com/2008/11/speedy-cable-beret-pattern.html
The scarf I made up myself, will write the pattern when I've got some spare time.

Before I made Lizzy's hat, I did a trial run but didn't change to big needles for the main part of the hat. This one turned into more of a beanie but suits me rather well. Rob's been a little artistic with this pic, I'm not usually green!

Next up a little hat for my Pops.
I made this with some lovely yarn Coz and Mark gave to me for my birthday. Lovely lovely colour. I used the same basic hat pattern from my Hats hats Hats post and just incorporated some cabling.

I made a list of all the Crimbo knits I want to do over the next 3 months - its long, so I best get cracking - Tara for now!
