I just finished a cable stole out of Misti Chunky alpaca. It feels like baby kittens and knits up quickly. In fact, I think I knit it faster than I’m going to be able to chart the cable. I’m really an amateur at charting, so I’m using Word and tables. Yikes! Let me just say I was up until 2:30 last night (this morning) slogging down the learning curve. You guys have any good charting program suggestions?
Here’s another shawl I just finished out of KidLin from Louet. Love the drape! And it’s great for this drop stitch pattern. And it doesn’t need a chart!
But the cable charting crisis was balanced by earlier in the day. I had a wonderful evening with an old friend, Whit Robbins, from my Atlanta days. We spent 3 hours catching up with life and knitting, while my husband and hers talked trains. I am totally psyched. The energy of the Atlanta Knitting Guild is phenomenal and Whit has a lot to do with that. The guild brings in people like Alice Starmore, Barbara Walker, etc. and they are hoping to bring me! down to teach sock knitting. What an honor. Hi to everybody in the Atlanta Knitting Guild. If you live down there and aren’t already a member, check it out.
