I used Wisdom Yarns Poems in #553. I don't think there's an official site, but I guess they sell it here. (I found it at my LYS.) I definitely want to get more of this stuff in different colorways, because it's so soft and gorgeous.

Hey guys,

I've finally cast on for these, but i must be having a brain freeze.
The pattern says to slip 4 onto cable needle, hold to back, knit 4, purl one, k4 from CN. (i presume p1 at the end).

But the rib round goes k4, p1, k4, p1 - where does that purl 1 go?

what i've ended up doing is slip 5 onto cable needle (k4 and p1), hold to back, k4, p1, then knit the stitche from the CN....

I know how to do cables, but this has me confused....

Hi Dair,

I know, it's confusing. But it actually works, so just go with it. Smiley It has to do with how the knits/purl are split up in the cable. It'll work out, trust me.

Indie-knitter, that's gorgeous! I love the color.

I would so love to try this, but I don't know how to use DPNs. I've tried, but it just becomes a huge, tangled mess. Sad

so i should do the slip 5 then?
i cant figure out how to slip 4, then knit 4 when the next stitch in line is a purl....

Truthfully, it doesn't matter, because I did both, and the difference is minimal. But if you're worried about the slip 4, knit 4, it won't look weird because of the purl, trust me. I think I posted a photo of mine earlier in the thread, so you can take a look at that. The first/bottom-most cable was the slip 5, and all the rest were slip 4 as in the pattern.

A walk-in closet full of yarn isn't TOO much...

I know this is a semi-old KAL, but I made one of these a while back and want to make the other, but my thumb gusset on the first one has a big gap.  Anyone remedy this?
