Squishy cables for days

While I was in Dublin for the Blogger awards... I got bronze for my category FYI! But anyways while I was up there I had to visit Hickeys as I knew they now stock Wool And The Gang and I am OBSESSED with their crazy sexy wool. This ball I chose is bronzed olive and the colour is so perfect I wanted to pick the perfect one ball pattern for it.

Step in sos knitting company HERE and the MOST amazing cable knit hat-this was my first double pointed needle project and I found it easy once you get started! But the results look stunning.. this hat is the prettiest like ever....

Special thanks to Edward for answering my DPN questions and for making this pattern.. I will be making another for sure,

Thanks for visiting,
