Quite c(ap)able…

One of the more advanced knitters in my middle school class has learned to cable!

Her first attempt (a swatch of 20 stitches, with a 12 stitch cable) did not have a single mistake. Impressive, no?

The right and left cross, respectively, is a great place to start when learning to cable, and next week, we will work with a few other knitters who want to learn how to cable.

What’s more, I absolutely adore the photos snapped of her cabling perfection; there’s something so visually appealing about her bright yellow shirt against her beautiful choice of pink fiber and her hands look incredible–its as if you can see how much they’ve worked to knit, but they still look so youthful.
