Notes: After couple of simple projects, I was itchy for some complex texture action, so I started this right after casting on PepperMint Ginger. I love the way the cables are designed, how they are independent and yet connected. It's my first time to knit cables in the round, which proved to be more challenging than I anticipated. Instead of knitting the non-crossing rows back, now I have to either remember my rows, or be able to tell the crossing by their look and feel. The yarn, London, was discontinued a few years ago and I bought a big batch of it at Michael's on clearance. The Chinese name means London knots, a word play on the names of the yarn and pattern.
