Cables are so much easier than they appear. I was all wary of them, but as soon as I tried them out I was like "wow, what was I afraid of?"


I sound very blonde in the morning. >_<

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

i'm in love with Bobb!!  its like an easier version of the huge shrug i was gonna make from the last interweave.  i love that it looks so cozy.  but i'm wondering how practical it is in frigid wisconsin.  i mean, sure, my arms will be toasty.  but if i plan to go out anywhere, i couldn't sport it there cuz my actual body would not be warm enough and i wouldn't want to wear something bulky and actually warm underneath it.  hmmm but i also love that she made it from uber cheap jiffy yarn!!! i could make it for less that 20 bucks!!!!!!!!!!  damn all those christmas projects i still need to finish!!!!!!! but at least the little pocket monsters are a great idea of how to use up the ungodly bright soft acrylic yarns i bought to make my nieces' rock star armwarmers.... i bet the yuppies would buy those by the dozen at my coffee shop.   Grin

Cables are fun.  I've been knitting an Irish Hiking Scarf when I'm between other projects, and it's my first time with cables.

I am so knitting Danica...and the Pocket Creatures...and Mrs. Beeton...but especially Danica.  Before now, I've only been mildly interested in actually making most of the Knitty stuff, but I can't wait to work on this.  I'd try Tubey, but I still have a fear of commitment as far as sweaters are concerned (I tried Jesse's Flames from SnB Nation, but ended up ripping out the few inches I had and turning the yarn into wristwarmers).

but if i plan to go out anywhere, i couldn't sport it there cuz my actual body would not be warm enough and i wouldn't want to wear something bulky and actually warm underneath it. 

well just wear it inside then?  I'm in much warmer weather than you but I'm always cold on my upper half in the house because I like to crawl under throws (but knitting crocheting or surfing the internet brings your poor upper half out into the cold, LOL)

Anyway I think I've about convinced myself even though I'm still not sure of the bobbles... if it was another decorative stitch I think I wouldn't have much trouble, but the bobbles kind of are lovely and ugly at the same timre to me...but its so great to find something with a cheaper yarn (and it seems like such a great beginner project for me)

I'll probably convince myself by the time I could start on it...

I am so envious of you knitters Grin  This edition of Knitty has loads of things I'd love to make in it.  I'm in love with Tubey, and bobbalicious,and I love the idea of dicerolling to make Chaos.

Last time I tried to learn to knit it all went wrong.  I can crochet now, so I'm ging to have another go at learning in the new year!

I'm still thinking I like Bobblicious. I'm kind of a yarn snob and am thinking about choosing something a little bit nicer than the yarn it calls for.

Francie Pants- Which shrug were you eyeing from IK?
