So I have decided to take the mental plunge into knitting cables. I have only been knitting for about a month and have made three garter scarves. Impressive, I know. I have been crocheting for 12+ years but I am not so great at following patterns, but I'm learning. So is there something that would be a good for learning how to make cables? Does anyone have any tips about cables that would be good for me to know before I start? I have two books on knitting and they have been very good to me thus far. I wouldn't mind buying more books or patterns, I just don't know where to start. I'm going to go to the store on Sat. to pick up the needles I would need for cable, but I'm not sure what I would need exactly. Are there certain cable needles? I spent a long time last night looking for patterns with cables but I couldn't tell if they were in my right skill range. I looked through the knitting memories and couldn't find anything about cables, so I'm sorry if this has been asked like 100+ times.
