The beginnings of Dapple

Purple Cables

Thanks for all the knitting love yesterday - you guys are the best! And what do we have here? Could it possibly be more cables? Yessiree, it is!

So emboldened am I by my cabling success that I have thrown myself giddily at another cable project: Dapple by Kim Hargreaves. Can't. Stop. The. Cabling! And after using 3mm needles for so long, these 5mm needles are making this feel like one speedy knit. I only started it at the beginning of the week, and I'm already up to my raglan decreases. Wheeeeee!

I'm going to go crazy here, and give myself 3 weeks to get this dress done. Back done one week, front done the next, sleeves and seaming the week after. Can it be done? Ach, what's life without a few challenges now and then, eh?

Over to you folks!

3 weeks to knit a dress? Can old Jorthy do it? free polls 


  1. I don't think not having a TV matters, as I do most of my craft in front of it :)

  2. You're cleverer than I am, Tania - I get distracted by them too easily!

  3. I voted yes! Go for it, sister!

  4. That's a lovely pattern, and I think it will fly off the needles.

  5. Ya. Another no TV family! Course you can do it!

  6. If anyone can do it, you can. Bring it.

  7. Are you kidding?! I'm expecting to see you in it next week ;)

  8. Hello!
    I met you over the Easter weekend at a certain woolshop in the leafy eastern suburbs ;), wearing your fabulous green dress!

    This new project looks just as amazing (love the colour!) and sounds like you're well on your way to smashing that deadline - good luck!

    Meanwhile, I've been umming and ahhing over which wool to get for my project since that day I haven't even started!...
