It Looks Like a Big Fish Hook!

I've got two main projects on the needles right now. One is a baby blanket. This is one of several that I need to get working on. I know a lot of pregnant women right now!

And I learned something new this week! My co-worker, knitting buddy, Elizabeth was working on a simple beginner level cable knit scarf. She conviced me it was pretty simple, showed me how to do it and here's my first result! This is going to be a simple pouch with a flap. This opens up so many other opportunites! When my husband saw the cable needle he made the comment that it looked like a huge fish hook. It kind of does!

And yes, in case you're wondering, that is my desk. I've been trying to keep my knitting as cat fur-less as possible so I've been knitting at work only and keeping it separate from any knitting I do at home.

Your knitting looks great. I used to be able to knit, but I haven't done it in years.
