Michelle Hunter is hosting another mystery knit-along! This time, she's tackling cables and finishing skills with the Cable Channel pillow.
This mystery begins on April 4, when you can download the first clue from Michelle's website. A new clue will be added every Thursday throughout April.
As always, Michelle will be on Ravelry, answering questions and providing support. She's the best!

Many of us knit garments and accessories, but not home decor pieces. Kelley is working on her Cable Channel Knit-Along project, which is a pillow cover, and it got me thinking about all of the cool projects you can knit to bring your love of fiber into your home. Get your knit decor on with six of my favorite patterns from Alpaca Direct!
Kelley shows you how to knit the Left Twist. This is a nice complementary stitch to regular cabling, plus you can add these twists without the extra work of using a cable needle. This stitch looks good as a border on the edge of regular cables.
