|This is an in progress shot of the blanket.|
I am really annoyed with myself for not finishing but I did work on something so the night was not lost. I started to learn how to do cables and while completely scared of the things, I am realizing they are really easy.
I really got the confidence after reading this post and this post from Misadventures in Craft that I found a washcloth pattern to practice cabling. Really she has a point that if you don't have preconceived notions about doing the "hard" things in knitting or crochet they really aren't that hard. Challenging yes but not that hard.

It's definitely flawed but I am so happy that I can finally see the pattern. One thing I was surprised about was that working with the ecru was like working with black, after awhile I was so frustrated because I couldn't see the pattern forming. This morning it looked better though. I shall update the progress as I knit along til I get a FO.
In other news, I decided to participate in the Month of Craft Photos on Flickr. I figured that I have a new fancy camera and would be taking pictures for the blog anyway so what could it hurt. Below are the daily prompts and my first 2 shots.

Hope you have a good weekend!
