Baby it's cold outside

But I don't want the nice fall weather to go away! It's 38 outside right now with less than pleasant 30-40 mph winds, boo hoo. I'm dreading going out later to the post office, but I have to mail out my mom's birthday presents so there's no getting out of it.

Hey, I'm learning how to do cables! I'm making a swatch, basically I'm just doing some of the Irish Hiking Scarf from Hello Yarn. See:

I'm using Cotton Ease and size 8 needles, I thin I should go down a size if I ever want to make the full scarf. And then there's this problem:

Is this happening because I'm not pulling things tight enough after the cabling bit? Eh, luckily it's just a practice piece.

The November issue of Magknits is up! The Hoodie Baby Blanket looks like a cute gift to make, plus it's made out of Cotton Ease.

Hmmm, I guess I better get ready to brave the cold, I'm such a baby!

Your cables look great! And don't worry those holes are always there, it is where the cables cross, but you can't see them when you have the piece on.

I love the Irish Hiking Scarf. So simple, yet so lovely. And I second the thought on the cable holes. You could pull a little tighter if you want, but the holes will still be there.

it's freaking cold in here too.. i don't like winter.

good job on the cables! the holes will be there, but if you pull the yarn a little tighter the holes will be smaller
