Cable Needle Necklace Testimonial:)

Leslie Wind's Cable Needle Necklaces are now available to purchase in my side bar:)

Here is Alice Jean/LizzieW's testimonial
of how the cable needle necklace works:)

"Some time ago Darcy send me this parcel. The Silky Malabrigo party pink was sent with a purpose, Darcy asked me if I'd test a pattern she designed. As there was some cabling in the pattern, a cable needle would be helpful. So she and Leslie Wind decided to send me also a set of two necklace cable needles to test as well. They are just beautiful!
Testing is what I did. I started with the cable needle to make the Snowflake, an excellent pattern to try cables.
I am pretty pleased to work with this kind of cable needle. As I was used to the type with two open ends, I had to figure out a bit how this one worked, but it is really easy peasy. You just have to work always from the left to the right. And because of its weight the stitches stay on this needle.There are some very clear video's on this blog for using the cable needle necklace to do cabling.

About Necklace Cable Needles and Knotty Fingerless Mitts

My second project was the fingerless mitts, the pattern to be tested.
This is a fun pattern to knit, easily done as they are knitted both at once and only approximately 30 grams of yarn is needed.
The is the best part: one size fits all!"

I just figured out how your needles work, opposed to the double ended. I guess if I had just read the post.

Anyways. When is your group going to be meeting up in August. I need to plan out my calender and see if I have time to go up there. I'm due.

Talk to you later.
