this is brilliant, I hope you have a fabulous time in this..

a word about those IKEA wire drawer units, if they are overloaded with paper stash (ask me how I know) and they get heavy, the frame can separate. You can either glue the black plastic 'joints' in place. or use some cable ties/wire to reinforce them. Or just don't overload them with beautiful paper (but where is the fun in that!)

technicolourAquahearts, you are so talented, that poem is so vivid, I love the imagery...and I love all your art, but the skin cells abstracts are wonderful!

noodlenbug. I bow to your infinite knitting patience, that wavy pattern is great. I also really love those lazercut dovetails,

I am such a plonker, I get it now. I know where I am going wrong, but at least I stopped, so I only have to unpick a few stitches. The moral of the story, children, don't try cable after a day with students.

Don't knit, watch Dr Who instead...Dr and Dr Donna...got me right in the feels...no spoilers in case anyone hasn't seen it yet..but it is why I keep watching the series..many rubbish episodes, but a few like this...so good.

off to bed for me now, exhausted from half a line of cable knitting and 5 who episodes.

I think you do everything from the first bracket to the last three times. Assuming I'm understanding the pattern right (I don't do cables often), I get 110 when I count the first row repeating that section three times:


1) { [P4, k2, p1, k1, p1, k2, p4], [P2, k4, P2], { [(slp 2 back, K2, K2 CN), (slp 2 front, K2, K2 CN)] x3 }, [P2, k4, P2] } x2

...

1) { [15], [8], { [(4), (4)] x3 }, [8] } x2

...

1) { [15], [8], { [8] x3 }, [8] } x2

...

1) { [15], [8], { 24 }, [8] } x2

...

1) { 55 } x2  = 110


you are very clever and I am clearly loosing my marbles...thank you!!!

stomps into the room, throws herself down on a chair dramatically


I hate NEWTS...NEWTS are stupid..

I need help from you clever knitters...So I caved and despite my best efforts could not find a pattern for an aran cap for straight needles...I bought a circular needle...so I have started. I have a lovely rib done and am onto the first row of cables.

I am following this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/honey-and-diamonds-aran-beanie

she says that there is a mistake in the pattern and that I should only cast on 110 stitches. I have managed to pick up another two along the way, but that is easily solved. (I may have mis-counted...counting on circular needles is also stupid)

anyway, I have started the first line of the pattern, it tells me to do the first line-as written- twice. But when I count the number of stitches on the pattern, it does not add up to 110. - I add it to either 64 or 68, depending on the answer to the question below. What am I missing??  Huh Huh


also when it says this (slp2 back,K2,K2CN),   (slp2front,   K2,K2   CN)   x3 does it mean do everything from the first bracket to the last, three times. OR do it once and then repeat it three more times, giving a total of four??


right, feck knitting, I am going back to Dr Who..just heading towards the end of David Tennant...
