On Wednesday I got six pain management shots in my back. Yeah, it is as fun as it sounds. Last time, it was eight.
Later, after all the sedation and had worn off, I found myself on the couch watching daytime TV, as that was pretty all I was allowed to do that day. I was restless, so I decided to teach myself a new knitting technique.
Cables! They always scared me. How do they twist? What makes them do that? How on earth am I going to manage them? I had cable needles, so I decided to take the plunge. I grabbed some yarn and went for it.
Turns out, easy peasy, at least the basic patterns are. What was I so afraid of?
Now, I still had a little trouble juggling the needles and yarn, but I’ll learn. Practice, practice, practice!
Here are two of the swatches I managed. One is a basic cable, and the other is braid cable. I might tackle a real pattern with cables this weekend or sometime in the near future. Here’s to learning!
