After FOUR starts and ensuing " ribbits", I have gotten my vest started.
Here is a closer look at the cables that circumnavigate this vest. I finally
have put markers on to keep my place in the pattern. Because the cables turn in two different directions over eight stitches, the outlining stitches are also
Left and Right surrounding them. Hard to keep track of. Along with a few unusual directions this made me "CRAZEE" for a week. Now i am feeling better about it all.....
I made a little index card to keep my place in the 4-row repeating pattern
and am in the process of memorizing this pattern. I have finished 6 rows (on top of the 4 row border of garter stitches). I am starting to relax when I knit--it's been a very long time since I did cables....very mesmerizing and meditative work. I LOVE TO KNIT!! ;--)))
I do like the color--very muted and the Cascade ECO+ wool is lovely in the hand.
