In my early years of skiing, I would look at the steep, bumped up double black diamonds and think anyone who would dare to jump off the side of the mountain like that was certainly daft. It didn't take long before I had become daft and was tackling the steeps with glee.
When I first started to knit, I was thrilled just to have mastered a knit and purl stitch. I'd look at complicated patterns and just shake my head. Far more challenging than I'd ever be interested in, I thought. But as with skiing, one things leads to another and now I'm hankering to try cables. It's not that I particularly like the look of them so much as I want to figure out how to do them.
I'm planning to make one of those cute little cabled purses. I have some beautiful speckled purple yarn and I've picked up a free pattern from knit picks. So, to anyone who has cable experience - any hints/tips/advice?
