Well here is the first progress report of the Cabled Shrug, I have just completed the first main repeat. I have to do another eight of these babies, I may have to shorten it yet as I have short arms so maybe seven, and this is not for the faint hearted let me tell you. I can only knit it during the day as lack of daylight and lack of brain power after dark makes for too many mistakes. I did wonder when I started what you would need all the stitch markers for, it is only cables after all. Well I can tell you they save a lot of heartache and mean that you only have to unpick a few stitches as opposed to a whole piece when you finally would have discovered a mistake. I am probably making it sound like it is a terrible pattern and why on earth would you want to attempt it, but that is definately not the case, I LOVE IT!!! Sure it keeps you on your toes but the cables are beautiful, and the yarn is just gorgeous.
I wont be getting much of it done over the next few days as I will be too busy getting organised for my sisters wedding. Final dress fittings today and I have to get the spare bed made up for my auntie as she arrives tomorrow. So wish me luck, that I don't trip over walking down the aisle or anything silly like that and I will post a piccy of Janelle and I in our finery as soon as I get a chance.
