I pretty sure I will be able to do the cables from the video's I have watched. I am also knitting a scarf that has lace type knitting in it. I really like doing that, as the different stitches you do on the even rows keeps it interesting and alert. Even tho I have lost a stitch a couple of times and have no idea how, or could not find which one I lost to try to fix it. Thank goodness I read about life lines, they saved me twice from starting over on this scarf.
