New pattern: Noose

Sometimes I miss being able to just do my own designing, even though I LOVE working for Vogue Knitting as one of their designers.  It really is a great opportunity; I've met so many great people, been able to travel around the country teaching, and play with yarn.  What's not to love? 

I finally got some time to knit up some of my stash yarn into a new original design, Noose.

It really was the first time I just had fun experimenting with cables.  Now don't get me wrong, I've always knitted cables, (and in fact have a cabled beauty in the next issue of Vogue Knitting) but only exactly if I knew what i was doing, I knew how it would look, and I knew there would be no surprises.  I don't know why, but for some reason cables have always intimidated me.  There's just something so, I don't know...complicated-looking?  And if I had to rip them out?? Forget it.  But suddenly one night I just said, "Alright cables.  It's YOU AND ME."  So we had it out.  Now I'm not scared anymore.  I even got a little carried away and made a full scarf version of the scarflette above:

And you get them both with the pattern.  So download yours here and lose your fear of cables..  (if you had any).
