For the love of cables!

I have always been intimidated by cables. I don't know why. For years I have steered clear of them. They were a plague. A couple of years ago my cousin, who had just learned how to knit the week before pulled out a small square with her first cable. I gazed at it with wonder in my eyes. And I still remained scared of cables.

I've been sick for a few days, so last night when I was completely bored, I pulled out my Stitch 'n Bitch book and started cable-ing. It's great! I want to do lots of them... yeah.

Now I just need to work on my intarsia...

Nothing to do with knitting, but...

How do I set my archives?? I am totally lost, so if anybody who sees this, can you please help me. I've tried doing it by the directions, but it never works.. grr.

It wasn't really a problem, but I can see that it might be one as time goes on and I start posting more..

[EDIT: Nevermind, I figured it out. I hate it when it's something simple, but it takes me forever to figure it out..grrr]

What the *bleep* is up with ponchos?

Come on, it's not the 70s anymore. Ponchos are not "in".. Who wears them anyways?? j/k

With that aside, I present to you my first poncho: *blushes*

It's a very easy pattern, so I don't really feel like I accomplished anything with it.. But I bet you anything my 7 year old niece will love it. My second poncho should be finished by the end of the week. So yes, while I do not understand the whole poncho movement, I have jumped feet first into the craze.. And I'm considering making one for myself.
