I'm going bonkers over here. People...seriously. Look:
That is the Fulmar. The back to be more specific. To get even more technical..that main body of patterned cables was done over the course of 5 days...were talking 34 rows of size 2 tight cables. That's something on average of 7 rows a day...and I know I didn't knit every day.
How is this possible you say. How is it that you go from knitting 2-4 rows on average a day to a whopping 7... no cable needle. Oh yeah baby...I've mastered the technique. I'm sooooo thrilled to have this down. Now, I'm back to work and don't have all that free time to knit away. It was nice to get a big chunk done though.
My other work in progress is the hot coco socks...
I was going to rip it out and try the yarn on a larger needle, but I got lazy and just kept knitting. I'm hoping it softens a little with the blocking.
I'm also thinking it's time to try out a heel flap gusset with these bad boys. I like the short-rows and have gotten to the point where it's mindless...which is good, don't get me wrong. I just feel the need to learn a new trick, since I'm on a roll:P
