I am so proud of myself. At the gentle urging of Beth Z and Maile I did it... I first tried the slip knit thing.... TOO Easy (off white swatch) And then tried the Ellis Cable (Small one and in purple) and viola... Cables. I cannot believe they are that easy. I figured it would be a week or so before I could actually even attempt to do cables!
I didn't have any DPs, so I used a mini orange wood stick from a manicure kit. Don't laugh... it worked!!! You can see it in the picture of the cables.
Thank you so much Beth Z and Maile!
