Rx: Cable Knit Isn't Just For Sweaters

I love fusing fashion trends with home decor, especially to bring in any new season. Cable knit is all over the runways this fall. And sweaters occupy most clothing stores these days. 

With temperatures falling, we like to have warmth fill our homes. This can be true for more than the thermostat. A great way to welcome in fall and winter is to surround yourself with warm texture. Here are some products to do just that.

Buying from Etsy is a great way to support small business. I love these pieces:

Disclaimer: Most of the pieces featured are not pet-friendly. Cats, in particular, will love nothing more than to destroy intricate knit patterns. And dogs cannot be trusted with anything intricate! So, if you're not a pet owner, go to town with cable knit this season! And one day, may you be so blessed as to get a little fur ball of your own.
