That's the thing about cables - they are so addictive that you zoom right along, panting excitedly at the prospect of seeing the next one formed. What - no panting from you? Huh. Weird - I'm panting all the way. Maybe not out loud, but there is definitely some internal monologue-ing going on. "Look! Another cable! Does life get any better? Knit 5 from the left, knit 5 from the back - whooooeee. Check.It.Out! It's a beauty! And only 12 stitches until the next cable. Yee har!"
And the cable decreases? Oh boy, don't get me started! Yep, it's all adrenaline knitting around here at chez Jorth. As the Galumph would say, it keeps me off the streets. What, exactly, he thinks I might be doing on those streets I've never dared ask. Maybe he's worried I'll race up to total strangers and declaim my love of cable knitting to them. Like that would be a bad thing (scoffs).
Anyway, the beanie called Kat is done, and done quickly at that. It was quite a fun knit, once I got over the post-rib increase row (it was a doozy). Looks best worn like a slouchy tam, as modelled by Grumbles.
Now, as Bridget Jones would say, back to the studio! Or in my case, back to the Isabel dress. Wheee - more cables!
