Honeymoon over.......


Ruby & I have been going at it for a couple of weeks, staring at each other lovingly & so tightly wrapped up in our bliss that I failed to realize that 12 rows after the bind off of of the first armhole where it says "continue in pattern" that they meant the cable pattern. I thought they meant "knit the knit" "purl the purl"...DUH! "How long have I been knitting?" So that sweet cute little ball of yarn is what I have ripped from my Ruby. So I guess this where Debbie Bliss separates the woman from the girls & I need to step up to the plate. I have to figure out a few minor things but I shall continue on....LESLIE, HELP!!!! *we must meet soon*

You can do it!! Knit on. Actually, I should probably say "cable on".

Yes, but in your defense, reading the instructions and understanding them are often two entirely different things until you see what they're saying. At least that's how it works for me.

But wow, Ruby is pretty!

Sorry to hear that the honeymoon's over. It looks like a great project though! Those Debbie Bliss patterns can be a pain.
