I know I have been a tease with all the knit talk on the blog, and no finish projects to show for, but here I am to redeem myself! I'm so excited to finally share one of my recent knitting projects with you!

When one of my really good friend's cousin approached me for a custom order, I already had a visual in mind. I wanted to play with cables, and since she wanted a set in a wine red color, I knew the idea would really come to life. For this order, I chose to work with a 100% Peruvian Highland Wool yarn, which I think will serve well for the cold Canadian winters. The yarn is soft for being wool, and does not itch (the usual downside of 100% wool yarn).

The idea for the cables came from looking through my copy of The Complete Photo Guide to Knitting by Margaret Hubert, which offers roughly 200 different stitch patterns. I did debate on whether or not add a pom to the beanie, but then decided against. I think it looks lovely on its own, and having the ability to pair it with a matching cowl, or swap for a matching ear-warmer, will make dressing up for the cold weather more fun.
