On the Needles

click to enlargeI checked out Cables Untangled from my library, and I give it 5 stars. Though I've experimented with traditional rope cables, this book helped me wrap my brain around twists, and how to knit without a cable needle. This swatch is my lesson, and also the beginnings of a possible project.
