Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in Festival
Pattern: Fetching from Knitty
Needles: 2 x Boye size 5s
I somehow accidentally, in the second cable, knitted 1 row short before crossing the cables - I must have clicked the row counter on mid-row. It looked a bit funny and I tried to let it go, but I knew it was there so this morning I took a big risk ( 'twas a big risk for me) and yanked out both needles and ripped back to the cable row, carefully pulled the yarn out of a stitch, picked it up with a needle and thread all the way around and carefully put it back on the needles, phew. It is now fixed and even though I was shaking when I did it I figure the more times I do it the less scared I'll be - not that I'm going to deliberately make mistakes just to rip 'em out ;)
I had to figure out how to cross the cables, I now know that the working yarn needs to stay at the very back behind the stitches on the cable needle, and that you don't knit the stitches off the cable needle out of order or from the same side they went on. It has been a great introduction to cables and I can't wait to finish/wear them. Now if I could just get off the internet I may have them finished by Monday like the designer says.
Oh and the yarn I ordered for the Central Park Hoodie is now on the way as well as the pattern for it. Perhaps I should join the knit a long.
