I’ve never done a Honeycomb Cable Stitch, but I have to say, I really enjoy the 4 st repeats. Who knew that 4 stitches could offer such texture? Ever since I learned how to do cables I’ve almost always enjoyed them. It’s just complicated enough to keep my interest and not make me want to throw my needles across the living room!
I’ve also been keeping busy with two swaps. Did you hear me? TWO SWAPS!!! I am in the Sockret Pal swap. This is my incentive to make socks…not for me. I think I have convinced myself that I can’t knit myself a pair. But I know I can knit a friend a pair. (It’s my warped feet I tell you…which by the way, I indulged in a manicure and pedicure today. Thinking that my toes were fully dry, I put my socks and shoes on. BIG mistake! Apparently my big toes take longer to dry.) The other swap is the Secret Pal 9. I haven’t gotten my pal yet, but we will be paired up pretty soon! Then look out!
I’ve already done a bit of browsing, (hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge), and among finding the cutest little stitch markers I found her:
Her name is Simone the Cat and you can find her at Weeone’s Etsy Shop. As you know, I have a Siamese cat, and this would be a great compliment to him if I had a little Siamese kitty adorning my knitting. There are also cows, skunks, ladybugs, dogs and other cats in this line of stitch markers. So check it out if you are an animal and knitting lover! Don’t expect to find any Simone’s though, I think I’m gonna clear her out!
