So I’m knitting this cabled blanket. It goes along quickly until I get to the cable rows, then things take a much slower turn. I love the cabled stitches and how it almost looks like a basketweave, but the cables are so sl-o-o-ow I’m turning into a basket case.
Here’s this week’s progress, a long rectangle of cables:
Which got me thinking: maybe this cabled blanket doesn’t want to be a blanket at all. Maybe it wants to be a sweet little scarf? Or, if folded in half and seamed just so, a cute little pillow?
What do you think it should be? Because, while I love the way the pattern is knitting up, I just don’t think I have it in me to make it into a blanket.
