Being a wife to a yarnie has lots of benefits. Apart from the constant aboundance of colorful skeins in your surroundings, you get to test new bases and colorways too. It’s so much fun!
This is my second collaboration with my husband hiding behind “Martin’s Lab” - this time he prepared lots of DK weight yarns in pretty colors and I got to create something I like most - a cabled hat.
I love its name a lot - it reflects the cables on the hat and our lives together so well, meandering around colorful yarn since we tied the knot. Literally ;)
If you’re wondering about these pretty cables, you should also check out “Norah Gaughan Knitted Cable Sourcebook”.
I’m sure it will be your next bedtime story :)
