Fresh Blue Cable Blanket

This is my next venture in knitting. I love the contrasting colors. The blue is just so pretty.

My friend has generously donated her earring as a stitch marker! :)

The pattern is really simple and easy to follow. I was scared to start a cable blanket but a couple youtube videos later I had an idea. The second hurdle was buying a cable needle. I didn’t want to spend money on something I wasn’t even sure I could complete. So here is how I made my DIY cable needle from Skewers.
