Well, it sure was for me anyways! Seems like it's in the air. You know, cables doing what they want, when they want, and how they want.
Oh..wait, we put them cables in don't we..hmmm! Well before I confuse you any longer I present my WIP I've been concentrating on the most this past week! Mr. Lipstickjeans
Here I was, knitting along and feeling very positive about finishing it soon..(realistically, a week or so maybe) I was finishing a skein of yarn and was going to start working on my sleeve I had started...(lemme explain this)
I taught a Magic Loop class on Saturday and I wanted to show them how you can use ML for different things other than socks. So, I started the sleeve on Mr. LSJ. Well, you know it can be a PIA to have a sweater that's growing in length and 2 cakes o'yarn going, so I decided when I ran out of yarn in the body, to just finish the sleeve. (class went very well, thank you for asking ;)
I was excited...the yarn was about gone, and I was knitting a cabled row on the pattern, and about halfway done with the cabled section... Woot..
um..well until I saw this!
See to the right of those markers...something is missing!! And before you say, hey let it be a design feature, um...no! It is in the front and the very first cabled part next to the future ribbing.
So after I calmed down, I mean hey, it's only 2 cable twists I'm missing. I've had friends with lots more than that!
So armed with my 6" US 7 dpns (I love these!) I commenced to fixing the cables that didn't want to be twisted.
It took 3 tries as I was being a bit picky. (and the sweater is turned upside down for ease in fixing)
And ta-da! All fixed! A leetle blocking and it should be fine.
What's that cool jewelry hanging from my needle?? Huh?
Cristi's original pattern row counters. The early version, before she started selling them online. I've finally broken down and used it and it helps a lot. About time I just knit and stop having to look at the pattern. Just move the row counter;)
BTW, hehe..I meant to mention that the hat I knit in the previous post was for the September KAL for Hats, Hats, Hats on Ravelry I agree it is an "interesting" name for a hat.
