This is what one pattern repeat of the cable/lace chart of my sweater. See that ball of yarn behind it? It looks pretty small. I wonder if I am going to have enough to finish this thing. I only have three balls left and this yarn is at least 10 years old and discontinued. I am thinking a different colored yoke is not out of the question.
The last row I did was the cable row. Years ago I taught myself to cable without a needle but it wasn't coming back to me or feeling particularly comfortable so I dug out my cable needles.
I thought I liked the Knit Picks needles but I don't. Those grooves irritate me. I had to go dig out this old gem. It's a Brittany Birch and it's much nicer to use.
My sister, the school nurse, gave me some old Epi pen containers which are perfect for holding that little needle. You know I'd lose it if I didn't have a safe place to keep it.
