Cable Knit Obsession

I seem to have developed an obsession with cable knit items.

Last winter when in NYC and it was -15ºc I purchased a cable knit beanie from The North Face.

Now the autumn is setting in my cable knit obsession is growing.. Last week I purchased some brown suede boots with fold over cable knit ankles from Sainsburys.. unfortunately I don't have a picture to share, but they have a chunky button on the side and are just adorable! They are fleece lined and cannot wait to wear them! 

I also purchased 2 cable knit cushions from Tesco, I have been looking for some for ages but they also cost a fortune and as much as I would love to be crafty and make my own, I just don't have the time. These were just £10 each and are lovely and soft and cuddly!

You'd hope that by this point I would have fulfilled by cable knit urges, but no, I'm still going! On Sunday morning I was browsing amazon and it suggested I take a look a some cable knit hunter welly boot socks.. dangerous territory as I have wanted hunter welly socks for ages now, and added with the cable knit they became a 'please can I have these for my birthday' request!

Now I have just discovered that they do matching mittens to my north face hat, which I think I need to survive the winter! I'm a massive mitten fan, especially when they are knitted and lined with fleece like these!

So maybe I will allow myself to buy the mittens to stop my fingers falling off in the cold and hope that they put an end to my obsessive cable knit item buying!
