I am so excited! I recently went to a knitting social at JoAnn Fabrics. My hubby works there and suggested I get some folks together to have a teacher come in and show us some tips and new skills. I had been wanting to learn how to cable knit for some time, but just couldn't quite get the tutorials. Now that I have learned it, I don't know why I found it so hard!
So I put my new skill to use right away by knitting up some wristlets for my mom. They came out so good, that I think I will have to make some for myself!
They were knitted flat and then sewn up the back. I got the pattern from Lion Brand here.
LOVE!! I found some super soft acrylic/wool blend yarn and they knitted up quite quickly. Amazing how adding that element makes such a huge difference.
I think I may try making a tutorial, since I found it so tough at first to understand. Maybe I can help shed some light for those who are self taught like me and knit kinda weird. :)
Hope you have been enjoying the long weekend. Happy MLK, Jr Day!
