Norah Gaughan's Cable Sourcebook

The new Knitted Cable Sourcebook from Norah Gaughan is amazing. Have you ever marveled at a Norah pattern and thought, "How does she do that????" Well this book will answer that question for you. There are plenty of familiar gorgeous cable patterns, charted and written out for you. But then there is a whole section full of this sort of thing:
Seriously. These are amazing. Do yourself a favor and stop by the shop to flip through the whole collection. As if this wasn't enough, there are patterns, too.
I must say, I am not really a knitted skirt kind of gal, but Norah's skirt patterns always catch my eye.
I am intrigued by the construction of this sweet cloche. I want to know how it works. And this huge chunky scarf looks like a ton of fun to knit and wear.
The sweater patterns are lovely, too. Which is not at all surprising. The batwing sweater is so unusual and feminine.
And this shawl-collared cardigan in bulky wool. Oh man, I am love. This would be perfect and lofty in Harrisville Turbine. And very warm.
If cables are your thing, this book will make you happy! Pick up a copy for yourself of put it on your wishlist.
