Cables!!

Okay, now I'm obsessed with my new skill, cabling without a cable needle. It is knitting's version of a party trick. I'm practicing it a lot while doing Lisa's mittens (mitten #1 is done, all but the thumb) and I even showed the owner of Knitter's Haven how to do it on Friday when I was down there getting a sock yarn injection. (I'll take a picture tomorrow of my new stuff).

I even joined a new knit along. See the button over there? Click it soon, and you'll see me posting my cable things. They have to invite me so it might take a day or so.

If you go to the Warm Hands knit along blog, you can see me post there, too. In fact, I was the first one to post a photo. Isn't that exciting!

Yes, I realize I'm getting two knit alongs with the same projects. Maybe I'll branch out at some point. Or maybe I won't.

I'm starting to spend more time on the internet reading and goofing off about knitting than I am actual knitting. I've got to watch that. I know Lisa knows what it is like to hear the computer calling to you.

Right now it is telling me to go to bed.

I love that expression: "knitting's version of a party trick". How true! Take a peak at your post on Warm hands, the pictures are not showing up.

That is the problem with blogging - it takes just as much time as knitting, if not more!
