Cables!

I've been all sick today and haven't even knitted. (That's pretty darn sick huh?)
I did make a new Logo thing for this blog though. That's it up there on the top. Yesterday I started X-mas gift scarf #2, which is an Irish Hiking Scarf, and my very first cable project ever. It's easier than I thought it was going to be if I can just manage to not lose the single dpn I'm using in lieu of a cable needle.
X-mas gift scarf #1 is just plain garter stitch in the lovely smooshy Rowan Polar, and should be done this week no problem. I'm starting to think I can finish all my gift knitting in time now. YAY!
I was planning on watching my spinning video and spinning this morning, but since there was the sick that didn't happen. Maybe I'll do that Friday. Saturday I'm planning on going to Eureka Springs to check out a store there called The Spinning Wheel. I'll let you know how that goes.
Everybody have a nice Thanksgiving! :) I'll be getting stuffed with food then I'm planting myself on the couch to knit for the rest of the afternoon.

Hi! I joined the Irish Hiking Scarf Knit-Along ages ago, and still have not started! I better get on that soon. Looking forward to seeing your progress! :)

Cables are so fun~at least I think so!

Take care and Happy Thanksgiving!

I love the cable scarf. I think that cables are fun to do; however, when you have a lot of them in a sweater - you have to concentrate. I'll check back to see your progress.
