Arghhhhh!!!!! #$%*(#% MOEBIUS:

2nd try (and boring sock progress shot):

I worked a half inch back and forth before I joined. Didn't want to keep twisting the same 216 ding-dang stitches over and over. This is Lisa Knits Cable Vest. I'm teaching a class in February. This is the sample.


My lavender buds from Labyrinth Hill arrived like the day after I ordered them. From Washington state. Yikes. Love that Etsy!! I stuffed the little heart and crocheted a chain hanger-thingy. It smells divine.

Here's what happened with Gus's wonky cable sweater. I dropped the stitches down to the wonky cable:


Then I re-twisted them and started picking the stitches back up. It involved knitting each ladder into the stitches,

then putting the worked stitches back on the left hand needle, so, and working the next ladder:

It was an interesting experience. I never tried anything like it before, and I must say it was not as difficult as I thought it would be. However, after all that I think the cable still looks wonky. Not as wonky, but still wonky.

hey. I would be willing to cmoe over and sit with you while you knit the darn thing. Perhaps talking it out with someone would help. Plus I miss you.

If I ever have to fix a bad cable, I am totally coming in to have you help me. I tried it once and just flipped out.

purl - where you been, stranger?? come in and visit me!!!

jjp - I knew it was coming! you were MADE to work in a yarn store, girl. I can't wait to hear all the rosie's gossip!

liz - I think ignorance is bliss - I just sort of plunged in. plus I hadn't knit that far and wasn't that emotionally invested. But come in anyway!!
