SARAH HATTON: Montacute
The Knitter|Issue 172
Gorgeously soft and elegantly cabled, this sweater is a midwinter treat

SARAH HATTON'S latest cabled design is both warm and beautiful, and will make a lovely addition to your winter wardrobe. The patterning on the body and sleeves features twisted ribbing and elegant OXO-style cables; the twisted rib pattern is also used for the high collar. The fabric is incredibly soft, thanks to the use of UK Alpaca's lovely Superfine Alpaca Chunky yarn.

A Short Tale From a Short Season

Most of us have had that special cat—a heart cat with whom we had a deep connection. It may have been one we had as a child, or one that saw us through a troubled time, or one with whom we bonded as we exhibited at cat shows. Whether the cat found us or we sought it out, the connections cannot be denied. These are the stories of some of those special cats and what they meant to us.

6MM ARC

After using a 6.5 Grendel to cull a goodly number of Texas feral hogs, I’ve developed a great deal of respect for the cartridge. This has mostly involved nighttime forays shooting with thermal imaging optics. The 2.26-inch confines inherent to AR-15 magazines, and the Grendel’s limited case capacity, make 123- to 130-grain bullets the practical upper limit for such activities. These projectiles chug along at around 2,350/2,450 feet per second (fps), but deliver well out of proportion to its diminutive size.
