Remember the Retreat I went to a couple of weeks ago? Since the only thing I had on my needles was Remember When, with its short rows, eyelet rows and picot trim, I felt I needed something much easier to knit. Keeping track of all that was just too much while chatting and laughing (and drinking). When I shared with a friend what my project would be, she was shocked I chose cables. I'm knitting Bray Cap from BT13 with Shelter and I've started the crown shaping. This baby will soon be finished.
I've been doing cables for almost as long as I've been knitting. They were so beautiful, so foreign, and fashionable. I taught myself to do cables by making a scarf for my Dad. I followed the instructions stitch by stitch (no charts in the "old" days).A few years ago I learned to do cables without a cable needle and I fell in love with the technique (YMMV).The book I'm reading (no picture) is by a favorite author, Nicole Krauss. Man Walks Into a Room has gripped me from its first pages. I'm half way through, unsure of where the story is leading but completely wrapped up in Samson's story. Krauss brings the reader to a place of understanding the solitary solitude of not knowing who you are.
