Pam's Comfort Cables
A while back I did a short post called Crochet Cables, it was just a picture of a cable and a short description. In that post I mentioned 'working on something else but could not talk about it right now.' Here is that afore mentioned cable, it is called the Breezy Cable Square.
This is my part in a wonderfully thought out and excuted plan to show Pam Gillette aka Ms Knotty Generation, how we feel about this talented designer and friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Every twist and turn was made with love and hope that we could do the Mistress of crochet cables proud. If you are part of Ravely you probably have visited her Crochet Celtic Cables group and know of her passion for cables.
I was proud and honored to be asked to take part in this project with the best of the best in the crochet world. Talent like: Tracie Barrett, Gwen Blakeley Kinsler, Vashti Braha, Bendy Carter, Robyn Chachula, Doris chan, Drew Emborsky, Lisa Bentry, Ellen Gromley, Mary Jane Hall, Jill Hanratty, Tammy Hildebrand (also project Coordinator), Amy O'Neill Houck, Margaret Hubert, Kimberly Kortary, Marty Miller, Annie Modesitt, Diane Moyer, Kristin Omdahl, Dee Stanzian, Mary Beth Temple, Karen Ratto Whooley. Technical Editing done by KJHay, Kimberly Kotary, Susan Lowman, Marty Miller and Annette Petavy. Graphics and Photos by Amie Hirtes. The beautiful introduction by Marty Miller and Diane Moyer.
We were all sent yarn provided by Knit Picks and set out on the task of making and writing instructions for the 8" square. These squares were put together to form Pam's Comfort Cables. 20 pages containing 24 cabled designs for sale at the very resonable price of $4.99 with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Pam.
I present to you what crocheters do best, our love and hug to Pam Gillette.
Pams Comfort Cables!
