I have been hankering to learn something new, so I watched Amy's video. A big thank you to Amy. It really helped. They only thing that confused me was what to k and what to p on the different rows.

Again, kuddos Amy. I can't wait to find something cabley to knit.

Great job on the cables! They are really enjoyable to knit aren't they :thumbsup:

Nicely done! Fun, wasn't it?

When I first learned to knit, I knit a sample of every cable on the pages Sears gave away with yarn purchases. I still have the very long, skinny work.
(Yes, I did say Sears. They had wonderful yarns.......more than 40 years ago. :doh:

I still had questions about it all after watching the video over and over. I got how you just took some of the stiches and put them either in the front or back, but how do you get to that point.

I did an internet search and found this web site.
http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/DummiesArticle/id-879.html. I really liked how it gave row by row explainations.

To night I'm going to try and do a different cable swatch.

What type of cable holders do you use? I tried a hook cable thing. It bugged me. So I ended up using a tip from my needlemaster. I didn't like that it wasn't pointed on both sides. I went to the LYS and they had ones with a dip, but since I'm banned (my husband's command) from buying any more knitting stuff for a bit. I didn't get them, yet.

It is a great job Christine!!! Congrats!!!

Your cables look wonderful ! Great Job ! :happydance:

What I learned today from the videos is how to fix a dropped purl stitch !
Hurray ~ I didn't have to drive to the LYS for her to fix. I feel like a knitting grown up now !
