    Power cables anyone?

    Power Cables is an exploration through the somewhat daunting task of knitting cables. Or so I thought. Lily Chin, master knitter for Vogue magazine, has done a wonderful job of breaking the cable patterns into workable charts for the novice and expert alike. While more handwritten instruction would have been great on one or two of the larger projects, overall the charts made the direction of the cables more clear and happily for this knitter, a doable thing. A wonderful book and a must for anyone contemplating cable knitting. :smileyvery-happy:
