The cabled wrap is finished. I'm not showing it to you until I have good pictures. This will involve heels. Clearly, this sort of thing does not happen every day. You'll have to wait until mid-May, and only then if all goes well. This project has been tormenting me since 2011, so what's another month?
Hope that helps, and I apologize if it didn't.
Let's look at something else!
When I began to hope that the end of the wrap might occur before my death, I began thinking about what I could knit next.
It needed to be fast.
So I made Christmas ornaments.
I knit little baskets out of scrap yarn, and then wound three tiny yarn balls to go in each basket. The knitting needles are made out of toothpicks and wooden beads (like I used here). I'm thrilled to find another opportunity to use those wooden beads. I still have a bunch left over. How many more things can I find to make that need toothpick knitting needles?
The pattern for these is free and here.
Once I got started, I had a problem stopping.
In my defense--
Never mind. If making eight tiny knitting baskets to hang on Christmas trees is wrong, I don't want to be right.
