That cable, those bags, and Elsewhere

That cable, those bags, and Elsewhere

New intel! The other morning, after my post about the Love, Actually cardigan went live, I got an email from Brooke alerting me that Churchmouse had coincidentally featured a scarf in their newsletter that morning with the same sort of “stockinette cable,” as I called it — although this one is a braid. I love it when stuff like that happens. So if you want to know more about that type of cable, or try it out in scarf form, check out their Reversible Cable Scarf. (photo above, top) And then I also got an email from hawkeyed reader Cindy who happened to know that the cardigan was originally designed by Nicole Farhi for her F/W 2002 collection. The closure is different and no pockets, so I’m guessing they made those changes for the RTW version, but that is definitely The Sweater! (And there were some outstanding cowls in that show as well.)

There was also a lot of meat in the comments on Wednesday’s Hot Tip: Resist the twist post, so go check that out if you haven’t seen it!

Other than that, here’s Elsewhere:

Knitting bags by Fringe Supply Co.

IN SHOP NEWS: We’ve got Bury Me and Knitting Necessities totes back in stock. The Holiday “Hank” Field Bag miiiight last the weekend, but I wouldn’t wait if that’s on your wish list. And this morning at 9am CT is the next Town Bag update. Each week we still have more people vying for them than there are bags available, but this is our biggest batch yet and we’re getting closer to equilibrium as all the people who’ve bought in previous updates are no longer competing. So my fingers are crossed for everyone, but they will go in a heartbeat. We’re managing to squeeze in one more update before it’s officially too late for Christmas, which will be next Weds, so make sure you note the update details on the product listing! And we’ll also have more solid canvas Field Bags ready next week — y’all keep wiping us out!

If you missed the gift guide, now would also be a good time to peek at that.

Happy Friday everybody — I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  1. I enjoy the scarf on Cover of the Year-mine got pretty long before I advanced from just garter scarves:) Also The Edge pattern by Alina Schneider has 3-D cables that seem all stockinette. I have pattern, yet to knit it.

  2. Re: Town Bag…just ordered one for myself…for my birthday in January!…so excited…we love our knitting bags!! As my current sweater knitting gains volume, I just can’t squeeze it into my Field Bag any more! Town Bag to the rescue! hehehe…any excuse to purchase a new knitting bag!

  3. I remember that cabled scarf pattern appearing from Churchmouse at the same time as the sweater that you wrote about. I was going to comment but somehow didn’t. Glad that someone did. Interesting. Great minds think alike.

  4. None of the others has the glorious asymmetry and *flatness* of the “LA” sweater–please, a pattern for these literally unique braids/cables! But these attempts have been valiant and much appreiated.

  5. Another version of your “stockinette cable” sweater appears inVogue Winter — this time as a turtleneck. .

  6. One more–Wendy Bernard’s marvelous KNITTING ALL AROUND STITCH DICTIONARY . . . (available in Kindle) has a “Cables” chapter in which she describes how to incorporate cables in an existing sweater pattern.

  7. That “Love, Actually” sweater: Something very similar could be done with Vladimir Teriokhin’s
    Cable Pullover at $2.99 through 12/23/18. It’s from Vogue Knitting Winter 2002 #25.
