Heather was one of the participants in the Cablewing Accessories Knit Along in the Never Enough Lace group on Ravelry back in January. It is many months since she finished the wrap, knitted in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted using 4 mm/US 6 and 4.5 mm/US 7. Heather made the wrap wider and added a repeat. I was totally gobsmacked by these photos of it, that she shared in the Prescott Pullover KAL – I am delighted that she is taking part in that KAL too – and told us they were taken by her husband at the Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde in Maine, US. If you recognise the light house it might be because you have seen the film Forrest Gump, this is the easternmost destination he was running to. Heather’s elegant styling with an evening dress is stunning. Thank you so much, Heather.
Eivind Røhne, the professional photographer I work with, knows how much I love light houses too. We choose to include Filtvet Fyr in some of the photos from Villa Malla in late May, but it is not anywhere near as impressive as this. I guess we just have to keep looking.
Cablewings surrounded by lace gives these accessories a flowery expression. They coordinate with the Cablewing Sweater; for a wonderfully regal look pair the wrap with the sweater. It is warm, practical but also decorative. All accessories are knitted in a pure wool with bounce, Embla from Hifa. I chose an irresistible purple-pink shade, well suited for the stitch pattern, for the cowl and the wrist warmers. The Cablewing Accessories pattern is available on Ravelry in both English and Norwegian.
