Notes:

I started this sweater on the plane ride to Camp KIP! We chose this for a podcast KAL, and it is a superb knit.
Changes made:
  • I’m turning the horseshoe cable every 4 rows instead of every 6. I like the look better.
  • 10/1/2011: L front complete! I’m SOOOO close to finishing the back.
  • Posted a quick tutorial about dropping down to fix cables on instagram here

This week, we talk about yarn substitutions.


When Knitting Attacks: (42:56)
Gigi cast on the Flickering shawl. It is  easy, grey and black yarn held together, in stockinette stitch. 
She doesn't like how it looks.  She will make a 4 inch square. If she still doesn’t like it, she will rip it and
use the yarn for something else 
She cast on the Ridgeline shawl on needles that were too long.  She had to wrestle it onto shorter
needles, that seem too short.  


Straw into Gold:(46:53)
