In an effort to do a little stash-busting, I pulled some Manos out of that big chest of drawers. I was going to make Rachael's Hottie Cozy (which, by the by, will be featured in this upcoming issue of Take Back the Knit, if it ever comes out!).
Jill acted as my swift:
And then she taught me to cable! Okay you, the experienced knitter, may be like Yeah, cables. So? But I never knew how! With verbal explanation it never really made sense to me, and I always felt that the rest of you had this little one-up on me. But now I know! (And I've been telling everyone about my new talent - mostly non-knitters though, so I don't get much of a reaction.)
The cable gives me something to look forward to every round.
Hot water bottle cozies for everyone!
