I was reminded of this cables hat I made a few years ago. Hope some of you can use it and try your hand at cabling with the knitting looms.*
The response to the booklet has been vivid indeed. Thank you for the comments and emails you have sent me about the upcoming release of Learn to knit cables on looms. I haven't received my complimentary copy yet so I can't really tell you the layout or pages of where anything can be found. But what I can do is share a bit on cables. Here is a video I prepared on creating a 4-st left cross cable.
To the left is a picture that I took of the reboso before I sent it off. The yarn, if you are already preparing to loom it (coughLizcough), is Lion Brand Cashmere blend in silver. It takes only 6 skeins and ooh, it is sooo soft. If you think the yarn is soft on the ball after blocking it becomes even more so. Gorgeous yarn, fell in love with it before the project was done. I did use blocking wires (thank you Tina) to block it to shape, so you may want to acquire some of those in anticipation, they are not necessary but they make the job a lot easier--unless you enjoy pinning 200 Tpins.
Healthwise: I am doing much better. I was able to move around without aches or coughing. My voice didn't sound like a frog so much this morning and I didn't forget to pick up my kid from school today. Oh, I forgot to tell you. Yep, the responsible mother that I am forgot to pick up my child from school yesterday. I realized it about 5 minutes after his school was over. I am terrible! I blamed it on hubby though as I had told him last week that I would be busy for the next few days and the kids were his to take care of. He left for work which meant that the kids were home alone (theoretically speaking). Alright, so I admit it, I am guilty! I forgot him! And I kept beating myself up all day about it. But now that my cold is gone from my head, I can think straight and remember 98% of my responsibilities--the dishes in the sink are not mine to wash, nope!
Well, hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful...book mark it, you may need it when the booklet above comes out...btw, have you pre-ordered your copy yet? Do you have a looming blog? I would like to do a book(let) tour...drop me a note and you may score a copy.
