With all the cables I've been doing, I decided to treat myself to a cable necklace handmade by Leslie Wind. When I received it and the pendant was attached, I felt it would not work for me with the way I was doing the cables. I called Leslie and she suggested that I put the hook on the cable and use the cable needle separately. I wore (used) it at my daughter's and she thought it was a pendant until I removed it to do the cables. Now I can't lose the cable needle which seemed to float between the cushions of my sofa.

I'm not so clever. Leslie figured it out for me when I called explaining my difficulty.

I was just looking at this cable needle last night but had not made up my mind to purchase it. I am looking for any knitting jewerly but have not found much. Your pendant is beautiful .

It looks very nice! I am wondering though on how it is used since one side is closed off. Do you take stitches off from behind? Maybe I am just being dense here.

I take off the stitches from right to left and sliding them on the hook which hangs either in front or behind. The woman who demonstrated it on youtube removed the stitches from left to right from behind. I was too uncoordinated to do it that way. She also knitted them from the hook. I couldn't do that either.

Your beautiful new piece of jewelry truly serves double duty. I'd be wearing it every day!! It's fabulous.

My friend purchased one of Leslie's creations several years ago and is delighted with it. Hers has a cat motif at the top.

Great idea. Cable needles are among my "most-often-lost-in-the-middle of a project" tools (now that I use circulars for everything and don't lose regular needles). Must purchase one.
