Cable Knits

I don't know what size needles Kosuke Tsumura is using, but I'm loving the results. It cant be easy to knit that hugely thick cable. Worth it, I think. You?

  1. hmm... Gives me ideas for cable management. Instead of trying to hide all the cordage behind a desk why not knit that bird nest into something awesome!

    Wait, would that be considered a cable knit?

  2. I am a doofus... I didn't catch the post's title.

    note to self: Don't comment on posts pre-morning coffee.

  3. I continue to enjoy your 'roving reporter' finds, especially anything to do with fibre. I imagine the artist discovered, when knitting with anything large or unwieldy like cable or garden hose or ivy that the arms are the best knitting needles. And I like Joel's comment (though I suspect it was tongue in cheek) that unsightly cordage can be made eye appealing.

  5. I'd like to see these cables used to make those macrame plant hangers. Might be great for the office decor.
