Oooh, I just love cables, Aran knitting, and the amazing textures that can be produced with 2 little stitches! It blows my mind!!
So, I was very excited to see links to free cable chart generators online!!!Cable generator #1 and cable generator #2--I saw these on Ravelry. I was instantly all over those, playing around with them. CG#1 is something you can use on-line and there are two choices of knitting symbols you can use, which is nice. CG#2 is a software demo you can download for unlimited free use, though they have disabled the print function unless you purchase the software, you can probably print it from a screenshot you save into a WORD document....
And here is a link to a neat book where the author makes cabled items without the edges: headbands, belts and trim. Interesting!
I am really interested in knitting EZs patterns. I know I could learn so much from each project....I just saw a sweater from her Knitting Workshop book, called Hand to Hand Aran, that is just beautiful (knittingem did a great job!) Amazing how timeless EZ's things are!!!
