The back of my sweater is getting a bit unruley knitting back and forth on circulars. I was thinking I don’t like this very much, I wondered if I should go back to straight needles so instead of twisting around in my lap it would travel across.
Duhh, I’ve got other cables and cable ends. (I even suggested that to someone who thought knitting flat in the round would be confusing, before I got the set.)
Not only does it avoid the constant twisting/untwisting it makes the stitches slide over the cable easier (the stockinette is wrapping around the cables badly with this yarn). Now sliding over the hump isn’t bad at all.
It cut 2 minutes per row off my time.
I guess this is why they call them “options”. It’s nice to have them, Options with options.
I wish I would’ve thought about this 2 skeins ago.
