Yup, sorry, more knitting I’m afraid. I couldn’t help myself, since i just managed to do something that’s been bugging me for weeks since i started doing the twisted stitches on this shawl. It was way too fiddly to use a cable needle for a two stitch bavarian twist, and i’m just not into doing that thing where you cable without a cable needle and leave your stitch hanging there, helpless, until you pick it back up again. So i was a very happy bunny when i found a method that allows me to work the twist with no cable needle and no helpless flailing stitches, yay! This is my little sample i used to test it out, and those are all my notes scrawled over the pattern in the background ;)
It reminds me why i love knitting. There’s no other area of my life where i really challenge myself, and when something looks difficult i just go for it, because i know it can be done, and the instructions are out there, and you just have to start at the start and work your way through a step at a time. The sense of satisfaction when it actually works is what makes it all worthwhile.It may not seem like much to someone who doesn’t knit i suppose, but i can live with that.
It’s a bit like coding, but with slightly less time in front of a monitor :D
