Teri had never cabled before, but because of the nature of this particular pattern stitch, I was able to break the cabling row down into micro units, and she was so proud to be able to do it! Because I am dyslexic, I tend to lay out directions in the simplest terms possible, and in this case, it worked out great :-} I felt so happy when she wrote in her comment:
"TAHHHH DAHHHH!!! Houston - We have LIFTOFF!!! THANK YOU Diana!!!
I FINALLY “GET” & can DO - CABLE knitting!!! You are a GENIOUS!!! Your crystalline CLEAR “Destructions” - PAINTED an equally CLEAR pattern - step by baby step!!!
Who knows - my new Knitting Maven you - I MAY be ABLE to finally teach my pathetically DYSLEXIC SELF - how the @#%)^&!&%!!! - to knit well enough to finally make those lacy dreamy Faroese featherlite knitted lace shawls I’ve only DREAMED of - someday!!!
