Starting a Lacy, Cabled Cowl


Aha! Looks like Clara's knitting, but it's mine! Even though it has cables and a lace pattern. My knitting skills have taken a big leap forward, I can tell. Because I actually understand a little bit about what's going on in this pattern.

It's a cowl and I'm knitting it in the round, out of a silvery fawn-colored yarn that's half silk and half mohair. And I haven't ruined it yet, even though Clara's gone back to school.

Beautiful. This inspires me to leave the land of knitting dishcloths and make something more challenging!

That is gorgeous. I'm a crochet girl myself as I just can't seem to keep yarn on knitting needles. I'm not sure what my deal is, but I got frustrated every time I dropped stitches. Are wooden needles less prone to this ailment? So, for now it's the handy crochet hook until I find some courage to give knitting another go.
