What a gorgeous bracelet!  I must learn cables this year!

The lamb is also very cute with his cables!

fishstix43--how awesome to learn to spin!  The yarn is lovely and practice will be fun!

AIMR - cables are  not as scary as they seem.  I just started knitting this spring and I tried them and had pretty good success. 
Double ended needles are scary to me as well as color change (which i *NEED* to learn as there's stuff I want to try).

fishstix, it does take awhile to get use to spinning. I'm still at the thick and thin stage myself, but it doesn't make it any less fun! Beautiful colors. Do you have any plans for the yarn you spun up yet?

I have watched tons of videos on cables and in my mind, I can do it...Alisha does them so neat and tidy! I fear failure but I just have to suck it up and try it! Cheesy

I can change colors but I also gave up sock making because of the two ended needles (DP's)...I barely can do circulars, but I am managing!  It is a challenge to try new things...which is why I love you guys!  Encouragement is great!

Vamped,
     No, I don't have any plans for it yet.  I still have a ton of roving left over, so I definitely want to get it all spun and then make it into a 2-ply.  It will probably actually end up being something super easy like a scarf because my knit/crochet skills are about the same level as my spinning skills.  Tongue  I really like spinning though, it's very therapeutic in a way.

It can also be very entertaining (or frustrating!) if you have a cat that likes to help  Cheesy

Swap anxiety setting in...........I've only made 1 thing for each of you so far. But they have taken a long time to do.

Anyway this thing I'm finished I can't post either until Sunday  Wink
