    The mystery of cables is revealed

    I taught myself how to knit, and and I wanted to learn how to cable. (Knitting Nature was my entry drug of choice.) Unfortunately, no one I knew was able to cable (drats!) and lessons are expensive. I also take great pleasure in doing things myself, being hardheaded and stubborn. So I went to the knitting section of the store and looked for a book that had some sort of cabling instructions. I hit the motherlode with Cables Untangled. It truly does live up to its title--Leapman explains the mystery of cabling, and has great diagrams for us visual people. Within the first few pages you're saying "Why on earth did I think it was so hard?" Plus, the beginner patterns don't look like child's play--even though they aren't difficult. For my entry into the art of cables I used the braided cable pattern for the scarf and hat set to make a very nice purse, and my first cable looked very nice, if I say so myself. The rest of the patterns in the book are also very, very nice--a few of the sweaters look daunting, but once you memorize the cable pattern, which you do quickly, they're not that bad.

    There's also a cable dictionary at the back, if you want to create your own cabled designs. Very handy for blankets or purses, or sweaters if you're feeling brave.

    I highly recommend this book if you want to teach yourself to cable, or if you're looking for some complex-yet-simple patterns to make.

    Beautiful, Useful Book.

    This book is beautifully put together with lovely close up pictures. The information and instructions are clear and useful. I would buy it again or give it as a gift.
