So. I thought I was afraid of cables. Turns out that fear was all in my head. Behold the progress on Dale’s Cable Moss Vest.
That is the back almost to the point of the armhole decreases. This cable knitting with worsted weight yarn (Classic Elite Skye Tweed, in case you’re wondering) goes pretty durn fast.
I got lots of hints and help, including a fabulous cable needle from Maryse and some real-time positive reinforcement on the difficulty of memorizing cable symbols from Martha. Lois gave me what is perhaps the best hint of all, though. She told me to color the chart with colored pencils. So, I colored the symbols in the key to match the symbols on the chart.
Isn’t it pretty? And it’s so easy to read now. It really really takes the confusion right out of those scary symbols.
I’m showing you a close up because I’m just so damned proud of myself and the conquering of the cable fear factor. Now if you could all just cross your fingers that I don’t run out of yarn.
Fear Factor. It’s not just about cables anymore.
