Re: KAL ~ cables! May 6-12

I am not knitting cables anytime soon. I am still doing this Oriental Lily. I cannot stripe my yarns properly. I keep getting puckering where I am twisitng them together as I change skeins. So annoying. I just want this to be done.

How are you twisting them that it is giving you issues? I don't usually twist I just cross them otherwise it makes it stick out but it also helps to do it between a stitch switch so like in ribbing or from k to p or something.

I'm not cabling this week...unless Erica wants soemthing with cables BTW- Didn't get the yarn yet...probably Monday.

When I twist the yarns, I knit up to one stitch before the color change, cross the yarns in the back, then still knit the last stitch with the correct color (yarn now in my left hand) then the new color row yarn in my right. Not sure if that makes sense, but I saw a tute on it and it helps. Also, just some wiggling stitch tension and blocking help to completely conceal.

That's such a cute pattern! I'm thinking of doing one for D and modifying the sleeve length for the heat here.

Finished the aviatrix, I will weave the ends in tomorrow. But I modified the strap to an I-cord with a pom pom and wanted to share how cute! It's WSK Logan.

I was low on trim so I didn't do the decorative stitching with it, and I did half the icord with trim and half with cw
