337 days til Christmas!
Ya, and I'm going to need all 337 days!
I wanted to get back to some traditional cable knitting this year. So I pull out my Aran Knitting by Alice Starmore (doesn't get much more traditional than that, eh?) thinking I would whip up Na Craga for Matt in no time (a: I've knit it before and b: the cables are easily memorized). However, Matt took one look at Irish Moss and fell in love.
Well, can't argue with his taste!
The problem is that the 1X1 twisted cables are fiddley for me. I can't do them without a cable needle, and so the progress is slooooow!
I plan on working a few rows every day... and that's how much I have done after 21 days.
Let's hope that 337 days are enough!
