Half a pair

I finished this glitten a little while ago. It is so cool, I love it! I would say this is an advanced beginner pattern. I would not do this as your first cabeled project, but the charts are well plotted. I especially admire how knitting through the back loop makes the cables really POP. I used Patrons Silk Bamboo I just picked up at Michaels a long time ago because I absolutely loved the color, and it knitted up super soft. Pic doesn't do the color justice. I will have to pick up another skein because I used 1 and a bit for this one glove, so I know I will need another to finish second. I will do more pics showing them on, once I finish the second. One down, one to go.

Islay update

This is her June hat she made for charity, the pattern is Very Berry Hat.

Also learned cables this weekend.......

And I know this doesn't seem like a lot to anyone but me, but...."She's sleeping in her bed!"
I bought this bed for Lexa in a boutique pet shop and spent like $40 on it.  Of course Lexa wanted absolutely nothing to do with it whatsoever.
So I gave it to Nika not expecting much and when this happened, ah so freakin cute.
