|Original Straboy cable|
Note to self: photograph finished items and look for mistakes before finishing the item.
I'm currently knitting the 30th and final (for this afghan) square. It isn't going as quickly as I'd hoped. The cable pattern is from Jared Flood's 'Druid Mittens'. The chart is microscopic and is somewhat confusing on the even numbered (return) rows. The symbol legend doesn't explain the stitches very well, such as, how to execute some of the stitches on the private side of the fabric. I've been winging it a bit. There are also bobbles which are executed on the private side. It is slow going. I may just rip it back to the garter stitch border and find another cable pattern to do. I've been scanning all my cable books and Interweave Knits magazines. Hopefully, I'll finish #30 tonight.
