Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.

oookay, so maybe I spoke a little too soon. My cables don't look quite right. BUT I am starting over and it will be fantabulous. Honestly it's not that hard it's just time and attention consuming!  Cheesy

you dont have nerve enough to be homosexual,
the least you can do is go into the arts.

Looks lovely, I love the colour! That's a great idea to use a dinner plate to block slouchy hats. Ysolda's patterns all look so lovely, but they're a little too advanced for me yet, heehee.

Don't say that! I am working on gretel right now and it is my first time doing cables and my second hat  Tongue

Caribou, it looks great! aaaand you can always knit more in different colours with a yarn that won't bleed  Grin

This was only my second hat too! I love knitted hats, I just don't knit them as often as I really should.

Ysolda recommending using Grumperina's tutorial for cabling without a cable needle, but I didn't really like that. It was easier for me to use a cabling needle because then I could remember if I needed to do a front twist or a back twist next.

The cabling on this project is super fun though. Good luck!!

Ok, ok guys ... so maybe I am under-stating my abilities. Still, they LOOK super advanced, even if they are do-able for us still kinda new not really knitters. And that's the important thing. Wink

Try to remember. It's only a game.

Knittinghelp.com has a really good cabling video that helped me learn.
And don't fret the cables, you can do it! I believe in you!
