Silver or Caramel Belle Cast on pics
As promised, well a bit later than, my cast on pictures of my silver belle. After writing out the pattern, I realised that, on the sleeve, anyway, it's on a 20 st loop. Easy, you'd think. Wrong, you'd be. For some reason, I have had to unpick a fair few times. Luckily, it's quite easy to pick up.
The cabling I've found ok. Apart from the fact that I talk like Popeye a lot of the time, with it gripped between my lips.. although I expect that Popeye didn't say stuff like "go and get your pjs on please" and "watch out the cat needs to go out". Maybe he did.
I'm knitting the sleeves on straights. Just because I thought it would be easier. I do grapple a bit with circs. The yarn, well I love the colour, but I'm not sure about the texture, it's a bit stiff, not cosy enough for me. I'll reassess at the end.
Here's a close up of the mistake I decided to leave in/behind. I call it individuality. Maybe some would call it laziness because I didn't see it until I was about 18 rows on from it. Whatever W
It's a one stitch mistake. Excuse the blurriness of the photo, it's to confuse you. Not really.
