In her original profile, I talked a bit about Lucy Hague's lovely organic forms.
She's continued this aesthetic, and displayed a particular strength with a beautiful riot of cables.

Here's just three of my favourites.

The pictured Morvarch speaks for itself. Diving in and out in such intricate ways, the cables on this complex wraps just might be the most interesting and attractive ones I've ever seen. Morvarch is part of Celtic Cable Shawls.

One of her most recent patterns is the Fallyn Cardigan, published in Knit Now. Cables are a little more understated on this piece, but still present; decorating the edges of the front panels and neckline.

And I hope you've seen her cabled cowl from Knitty 2012, Nennir. This pattern in particular seems to show off the stark contrasts of bright and shadow that you get with a really great cable. Need something (and impressive?) for the holidays? This knit might just be it.
