****  I am SO sorry to say that I could not find my pictures of the unknit cables.  I really looked everywhere.  It seems that they are gone... But here is a picture of me from 2012 holding a glass of Chardonnay. Does that help?




Also, here is the finished sweater:

  1. Great podcast! I appreciate audio so much.... I was able to do payroll and listen!
    I had NO idea one could rip out only the cable portion of a project! Thanks for the education.
    I'm truly grateful politics are not being discussed on your podcast, I have unsubscribed to one podcast Because of this very thing. The stitch markers are darling. Funny how all things knitting and crochet can become an addiction!
    Have a glorious two weeks.

    1. Thank you so much for this comment, Colleen! I am completely with you about the politics. Let's stick with the knitting, shall we? And YES - the cables! If only I could have found the pictures. I am still looking, and haven't completely given up hope...

    1. I'm so glad to hear that! But where is it now??? Gone. Lost in cyberspace. I still hope I can find it!

  3. Thanks for sharing the cable debacle fix-it and figuring it out. Inspirational. And it was wonderful to hear that your eight year old student made it through the awkward "beginning to knit" frustrations so fast!

  4. I too was disappointed in the Knit Picks yarn. I bought some years ago when it supposedly was better. Even then I was displeased so I imagine now I would be even more disappointed. I have to like the yarn I am using otherwise I will set the project aside and let it lay idle. That would explain my dishcloth projects. I just can't do cotton yarn. I find it weird and clunky. But I must press on because I do adore hand knit dish cloths. Oh the pains of being a "fancy yarn" obsessor.
