I really think I have to figure out how to knit according to the patterns. I decided to take on this pattern I found on Ravelry. But of course, I’m not using the right yarn!! Oh well.
It’s coming along- but it is the first time I’ve had to follow a pattern with counting. It’s also my first cable pattern, and I’m having some concerns about my cabling. There seem to be quite large gapping holes around the cables. I haven’t done cables, so I don’t know if this is normal, or if it’s because the pattern calls for 8 cable stitches; usually I’ve seen cable stitches for 4-6 stitches, not 8.
Anyway…pictures to follow!
