round and round we go

One of the stumbling blocks to working on the cable down raglan has been using a cable needle. This is my first cable project and I dutifully bought a cable needle to cable with. I didn’t know if you had to have a particular size (turns out it’s easier to use the same size as your knitting needle. My cable needle was smaller. Oops.). It’s been a drag. I just can’t deal with 3 needles going on at once. It’s very slow going, even when I started using a dpn of the same size as the knitting needle.

That has hopefully changed. Today I taught myself how to cable without a cable needle, thanks to grumperina. I did 5 rounds today, that must be a record! I finished the first skein of yarn, too, finally!

  1. i am so excited that you decided to make me a sweater in such a great color!

    Impressive. And she is making it in a color that looks great with my blondness. (This will definitely be another for my list of unfairness.)

    it’s unfair that you are blond?

  4. mom

    No silly, its unfair that I won’t have such a beautiful sweater to call my own. (It is nice being able to pout for a change and to play the martyr.)
