A little bit of knit and crochet

Yuck! Had a killer migraine for the latter half of last week. Therefore not much in the way of anything to report. The pain finally went over the weekend. Annoying though. I was planning on going over to Havant for an open day at Carl Martin's workshop. Never mind. Some other time.

Over the weekend I did have a little play with my new Knitpro interchangable circular needles.  Liked what I produced and thought it would look good as a jumper but even I'm not skinny enough to get into it! Took a piccy to remind me but have undone it to start again at a later date. Maybe 10 cabled plaits instead of 6!

Yesterday eve I remembered a crochet pattern I'd seen ages ago for a poncho. Decided I'd put my newfound crochet skills to good use and have a go. Some hunting later I found the pattern in the March 06 issue of Crafts Beautiful and completed a whole motif! Yet another WIP to be added to the list.

ooh love the cable and yarn really pretty :0)

The cable is super easy.
Worked in multiples of 9 stitches.
{sl 3 onto cn forward, k3, k3 from cable, k3}= 9sts
K next 3 rows (or p,k,p if working flat)
{k3, sl 3 onto cn back, k3, k3 from cable}= 9sts
K next 3 rows (or p,k,p if working flat)
Repeat as required!!

Does that make sense to anyone who's interested?
