half baked

Instead of finishing one glove completely, I started the second to save time while I figure out how to make the hole Karo wants. Seriously. This is damn hard.

Cast-on for my endpaper's and about 1/4 way throught the first one I realized I didn't like them as much as I had hoped. I'd post a picture but it's already back at the pond. Maybe a houndstooth motif instead. *shrugs*

I'll be so glad when I can knit for ME.

I have two other *secret* projects in the works right now for two friends who are all about exclusivity. They want stuff nobody else has, and nobody else will ever have. Easy enough, look forward to me breaking many copyright laws in the comming weeks.

what else?
Oh yes. I'm going to clean up this blog, sit down and write out some CSS/HTML and make a proper webpage. Whats the use of havin skills if you dont use them right?

I knit this for a good friend using 1 skein of cotton yarn. no itchies here, no siree bob. The last thing you want to think riding down a hill is how much you want to scratch your forehead. This was made for man's size medium.

what you will need:
1 50g skein of desired color (worsted weight)
5mm 16inch circular needles
5mm double pointed needles
tapestry needles to weave in ends

Cast on 96 stitches
K2P2 rib for 1.5 inches

Cable Pattern:
Row1: * CB6, P2, K2, P2* Repeat to end
Row2, 3, 4: * K6, P2, K2, P2* Repeat to end

Repeat these 4 rows 8 times then begin decreases

Row1: * K2tog,K2, SKP, P2, K2, P2* Repeat across (80 sts)
Row2: * K4, P2, K2, P2* Repeat across
Row3: * K2tog, SKP, P2, K2, P2* Repeat across (64 sts)
Row4: * K2, P2* Repeat across
