Felted cable


My flatmate has this theory that there are few things in the world that can't be inproved by throwing in a cable.

I was using a leftover half ball of tweed to do a felted case for my new electronic diary and I thought test this out.

Its inspired in part by Alterknits - Radford suggests felting old jumpers into bags and some of the ones in the photo looked cabled. I wasn't sure how it'd work out, this was really just a test run, but I like it. You loose the definition in the felting but that's part of the beauty - I like to think of it as a "sunken cable".

Next time I'll try with with wool that gives a better stitch definition and work a more complex cable. All I have to decide now is weather felted cabled socks would be (a) be too thick and (b) involve too-painful maths.

Felted cabled socks? Do you mean short ones?
Anyway, give a try! I'd really like to see, how it turns out.

I had problems with felted socks, but it might have been that I didn't block properly.
