any yarn can be cabled,
but not all of them do it well.
with a yarn that is too soft, you loose the crisp detail.
with a yarn too stiff, the gaps from pulling to twist the cables don’t fill in quite right.
i adore this simple cable knit up in
mountain colors hand-painted yarns’ ‘3 ply wool’
(shown in the colorway ‘sandstone’).
lots of stitch definition
and enough give to make the cabling look unforced.
today i’m still swatching,
but i feel like the yarn and i have almost
come to an agreement over what it intends to be.
more pics and the inspiration behind the process soon…
