First twisted cable
I'm messing around with a scarf to try out different lengths with the cable... I meant to do a seed on the edges, but ended up with a stockinette, so I'll have to block it, but I like it, even with the uneven cable lengths

Aren't cables fun!? I love how complicated they look when they really aren't so hard at all! We knitters will keep that little tidbit to ourselves though...

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

That's pretty cool. Kinda looks like a type of seashell.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

Looks good! I don't think I would have noticed the "uneven cable lengths" if you wouldn't have mentioned it! Cables are that easy, huh?!
