Today I gave a tutorial on crochet cables at my crochet guild meeting - not that I'm an expert, but since I have been working on my Solas Caomh I guess I have the most recent (or only?) experience with them amongst the group.
I did up a couple of small samples, a left crossing cable:
and a right crossing cable:
and wrote up the pattern and some notes for everyone.
I think it went ok. I hope so anyway! And I received a lovely thank you gift:
Teddy's first knitted hat! (I am slightly embarrassed not to have made one for him myself ... but now he has one!). All the ladies at guild are very excited, as this is "their" first baby too! It's very sweet!
