Celtic Cable Shawls and Kathy’s Knits

Celtic Cable Shawls and Kathy’s Knits

When visiting somewhere you obviously need to find a Local Yarn Shop for a look. That’s how I ended up in Kathy’s Knits in Edinburgh with Celtic Cable Knits by Lucy Hague.

I knit a lot of socks, but I don’t often add patterns or embellishments that I’d designed myself. Over years I’ve refined a pattern which I carry around in my head for a plain sock which usually forms the basis of all the socks I make. So when I finished the ‘Long long Witchy Socks’ and immediately cast on a pair of ankle socks I was slightly surprised to discover I really wanted to add a small amount of patterning.

Sometimes the most important thing is to just knit, the garment at the end is an added bonus. That’s exactly the case with this Gothic Night Shawl currently on my needles.
