Made this for my new Nook.  Im not a very experianced knitter, so two of my crafty new year resolutions were knitting in the round & cables.  I found this pattern online for free so gave it a try.  The creator wrote the pattern out so its super easy to understand.  So its great for knitters of all skill levels.  I plan to make another one eventually because the more I practice the better my completed knitting projects get.  If anyones interested in knitting one for themselves heres the link to the free pattern: http://eaca.blogspot.com/2010/12/endings-beginnings-and-pattern.html

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

You have done some good work, missmoppet. And as you said, practice will improve your tension, make it more consistent.
(But just remember, the variegated yarn she used can cover a lot of inconsistencies.)

You have done a smashing job on the cables! They look fantastic!
Thanks for the link. I need some cabling practice myself ... but first I have to get a Nook.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?
