I said I was going to try knitting cables, so here you go. Don't know if I'll ever do it again, but now I can say I have done it. This is a little 7X6 inch patch of the honeycomb pattern and I am worn out from making this. It literally took me 4 hours to make this little piece and my index fingertips are raw! I wanted to make a set of hot pads out of it, so I decided to make the second one crochet and that one took 30 minutes. Is this normal? Knitting seems to be so much more time intensive than crochet. Hum. I would LOVE some feedback to know if this is just me learning how and that's why it's taking so long, or if crochet truly is that much faster. I have been crocheting for, ohhhh, 19 years, but golly!
I do love this material though.
So now that I have experienced knitting cables, I should get started on my Christmas gifts for my parents. I have been in search of the perfect pattern for a very special something for my mom and I think I found something acceptable that I can alter a bit to get what I'm looking for. And Dad, I'm not saying anything about yours because I know you're reading this!
One last thing, a big thank-you to snaphappymamma for this child's apron I won in her giveaway a while back. I love it and hope to eventually put it to use!
