Not so Easy Peasy
It was a flurry of activity as I jumped from knitting chair to computer chair. Clicking from photos of other Peasy projects on Ravelry to YouTube for instructions on how to perform a Cable cast on and wondering why in the heck you would put that there?
Apparently, it sometimes takes a village and a whole lot of technology to knit a cardi! I bow to those wonderful women who took the time to post video of techniques from the most simple to the complex. And what did we do before Ravelry I ask you? Through this forum I was able to ask a woman from San Diego, California a question about sizing as she's working on the same project and made a new knitting friend.
Most of the time I feel as though I was born a couple of hundred years too late, but in moments of crisis with my knitting I thank goodness for technology. If it were 1810 instead of 2010, this project would have ended up thrust into a tapestry bag and kicked behind the settee!
