Cabling along ...

This knitter is very tired from a jam-packed weekend involving finding an outfit for a "formal dress wear" event (gah! where to begin? I'm a girl who wears no make-up and is always found in handknits, jeans and trainers...), to gardening, to blocking current progress on Central Park Hoodie number 2.

I'm fairly whingy at the moment since my back hurts from crawling around in shop changing rooms repeatedly taking trainers on and off, crawling around in the mud gardening and finally, crawling around on the floor blocking a bigger version of a cardi to go around my widening hips *sigh* so I will try to keep this short and sweet.

I'm proud to say that I have managed to complete the back, left front and right front. I'm on sleeve number 1 now. It's been 2 weeks exactly since I cast on. Considering both weekends have been pretty much full of non-knitting time, with one thing and another, I think I've done quite well.

I'm confident that I can complete a (buttonband-less, hood-less) jumper or cardi pattern for the knitting olympics this year.

I love how the cables form from the ribs - so elegant...

There was much more to show and tell, but it will have to wait ... every word I type is deleted and retyped due to the number of tiredness-related spelling mistakes. And so I will go for now.
