Skill Set: Experienced, with Advanced Cables

I've been slogging through loads of work this week, and spent all of yesterday at a football game (since I am now just two hours away from the dear alma mater), but I have still been finding time here and there to get a start on my newest gift project. Is it starting to look familiar?

All I have to say about it so far is that I feel like a complete ass for not knitting one sooner. A, it's so much fun to knit, what with seeing what the cables will do next; B, the pattern is so clearly written; and C, with Shedir and the Pretzel Cable Socks under my belt, I can actually read the charts, rather than having to look up each symbol as I come across it. Hey--I am experienced with advanced cables! I'll be knitting myself one as well, I think--I have some Aurora 8 stashed away that would make a delightful version.

Bailey is a liar.

I've been meaning to knit Rogue for about a year, and it's still on the to do list, but then I got distracted by the newer model. Yours is looking great, can't wait to see how it turns out.

Oh, oh, oh, I am so making Rogue and Eris at some point. Like maybe after I finish Shedir. You are definitely experienced with advanced cables if you knit those at a football game; they look fantastic!!

Oooh...pretty! Rogue is so on my list later this year. Don't have the yarn yet but the pattern is in my possession so there is no stopping me. Bailey made me laugh with her little fib today. Dogs are not very good liars.
