ebook

Well, the ebook is out. I decide to call it Untangling Cables because it really does go into detail about cables and how they're made. I have gotten really positive feedback on it, from beginners and experts alike. You can get more information about it here and it's definitely worth a look if you wanted to make a cable - whether a simple two strand one or a massive 32 strand braid. They're really not much different once you get the knack. http://wp.me/PNDS0-eh

Amazing cable work MR.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

Yep. Absolutely brilliant cable work. Love it.

That looks great. I'm looking it over and wondering if you could make a tree that way.

I tried to buy your book, but I'm not sure the checkout worked.

Michael, It worked on my end. Please send me an email at mrhugzzz@gmail.com if you didn't get the download. I did have a few problems with the plugin over the weekend. I will be glad to send it to you directly by email. As for the tree, absolutely. You could start out with a Saxon or Barrington Braid for the trunk (or even a 12-strand) and then branch out from there! It would be an interesting project. I may chart it someday ...

And while you are de-mystifying cables; Lily Chin is introducing a new charting system for them.

Yes, i am anxiously awaiting her new book that is due out this summer. During the process of writing this ebook, that was one of the topics that came up - a standardized charting system not just for cables, but lace and regular textures as well. As you know there are two symbols for both the knit and stitch texture, and a variety when you get into cables for regular cables and twists. I haven't even looked into the lace yet (that's your area - lol) as I have enough on my plate with the cables. I wonder what Lily has come up with - especially for reversible cables that have a rib pattern that is cabled!

There are at least three major systems for lace; and probably six or seven common variations. Virtually every magazine charts lace differently.

It did come through fine, just a bit later. Now all I have to do is understand it. One piece at a time, one stitch at a time, right Tallguy?
