Had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday, thanks to my lovely hubby and beautiful children. Flowers, cards, a book, chocs and a gorgeous teddy bear. I was bought the new Jodi Pilcot one, looking forward to starting that now that I've finished P.S I Love You.
I practised some cable knitting at the weekend by doing this dishcloth.
I'm not sure I completely understood the instructions. The T5B line reads:
T5B is worked over the next 5 stitches and is done as follows:
1. Slip 4 stitches onto CN and hold in back.
2. Knit 1 (from left needle).
3. Move the Knit stitch (it's on the far right) from CN to the left needle.
4. Purl 3 from CN.
5. Knit 1 (from left needle).
Note: In Step #3, you might find it easier to move that Knit stitch from CN to your right needle, and then transfer that stitch to your left needle.
But to me that leaves a stitch on the Cable Needle and after much frustration and unpicking the row again and again I decided to try different ways of using the 5 stitches and the CN to see how it worked. Here is the very messy result:
I'll keep at it, cable knitting isn't as scary as I imagined.
I won some fabulous pink cotton on eBay yesterday and the seller is over this way today and so is dropping it off! Result double-fold! 9 balls for only £5 and I get it today!
I have a definite project in mind for it, a nice vest top for moi which will be my first attempt at an adult sized garment.
Also ordered various bits and pieces online so awaiting that (nasty 7 day delivery, boo hiss) and have decided on this little dress for Bea.
