Today's Stitches efforts were focused on learning to make free-form knitted cables. Cables that just sort of ... travel around your work. It's a lot harder than you might think! I didn't quite get the hang of it myself in the 3 hours we were messing around this afternoon, but I do definitely have a much better understanding of the how's and why's of knitted cables at this point!
I was also very sedate in the market this afternoon. Why, I only bought 3 things! Well, three types of things. :-)
- 3 skeins of huacaya yarn, milled by the same folks who will be processing some of the fleeces I've been buying (Ranch of the Oaks)
- 3 pairs of knitting needles, including some square needles to try out
- a magazine subscriptions to Knitter's World (seemed only fair, since they are the ones hosting the event!)
I will get pictures posted, as soon as I have daylight, a camera, my stuff and me all in the same place at the same time!
