im proud of myself and wanted to share.
I am not a particularly patient or confident knitter so when i first tought myself how to knit, rather than carefully practicing how to cast on in a variety of ways and making sure i understood it, i learnt the long tail method, fiddled with the knitted on variety and then got on with the rest of if, predominantly using the long tail cast on.
well a year later i am still knitting and have just started making Fetching for my freind, which called for the cabled cast on.
EEK! i thought.
Then i remembered that this was the year of trying new things so followed the instructions and gave it a go. i loved it! yay for new things!
i just wanted to share. i'm about to go and try doing cables without a cable needle now ... wish me luck!
