    Default Wow that was hard

    I need someplace to show off my sideways cable soaker I'm working on. I'm starting a blog (http://woollybums.com/wordpress/?page_id=5) but it's a work in progress and no one but my mom reads it yet!

    Anyway, I knitted the cable then picked up stitches on each side. It took a long time and my hands are cramped from the tight stitches, but it looks great. The seam is invisible! On both sides!

    Very pretty. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    very cool! Great job!
    There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts.

    Dark wool is so hard for me to work with now that my eyes are weak. But I love the color - And it is intriguing to watch how you are doing it!

    This is actually a very bright blue color, but the light was really bad that night I took the pictures. I'll post pictures when it's done, and try to get some natural lighting!

    The first photo gives me a better idea of the color I guess then. I actually like the very dark look of the other picture too though.

    I'm having trouble figuring out where you are headed with this. Where will the cable appear in the garment? Will it go sideways across the tummy?

    I just bought a cable needle recently for use on the Entrelac pattern I made after Christmas. What a help that is! Before I used to use two ended needles that were so awkward to handle!- Learn something new every day...even at 64!

    The cable will be running around the belly, exactly. I just thought it would be a neat design element and good to help show people what I can do with customs.

    I LOVE my circular needles, both addis and the new knitpicks kit. I hardly ever use straights anymore!
