My new cable needle ring.
Yes, cable needle ring. Usually I do cables without a needle but sometimes a pattern has you working 5 over 2 stitches with bulky yarn and that really needs a needle. Usually I just grab a spare DPN but I splurged at SPA this year and bought myself a cable needle ring. This very unassuming little ring:

This thing is perfect. It slides the stitches on and off so easily and when not in use, it rests easily on my thumb.

And when I have to put the knit up, I just hook it in there and it stays.

If you want of your own you can get them on Etsy HERE from Leslie Wind. Or you can catch up to her at a show and pick one up. Really a brilliant little gadget that I’m happy I have.

The knit by the way, is Halliard being done in Spunky Eclectic Targhee Biggie. I’m enthralled with this pattern. I’m hoping I get enough knit time that I can get this sweater done before the weather turns too warm.

Rachel (although she wanted number 13) ended up as #8 on my list of names. As it turned out, 13 was not her lucky number this time, it was 8. Thank you guys for all the commenting. I might have to do this again sometime.

    Brilliant! I must have one! Thanks! :)

  2. I love this idea! I’ve been getting back to cabling with needles too. Seems that when I have too much on my mind, actually taking the time to transfer the stitches to be cabled compartmentalizes them enough to not add to my mental clutter, and I end up more relaxed and with nicely-turned cables. And fewer dropped stitches.
