I was part of a gift exchange at work and needed an impressive yet quick knit for my swap partner the name generator popped out for me. I started making quick cable pattern from a sweater and it turned out dreadfully wrong. Evidently, cabling while watching TV was a mistake. One happy cabling mistake, three color changes later after finding his color preferences, this was the ultimate result.
