Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

One of the things I enjoy most about knitting is that there's always something new to learn, even after 20-odd years. This morning, working on a baby blanket for a niece due in a couple of months, I realized I'd missed crossing a cable a couple of rows back.

A couple of years ago I would have had two choices: sigh and leave the mistake in there, hoping nobody else notices; or frog the whole thing back to that point, pull out the cable needle, cross it properly and proceed from there.

I chose option three: drop the six stitches in the cable, unravel just those stitches back the two rows, change the order I pick the stitches back up in to cross the cable, then knit the now-crossed cable back up.

I don't particularly like cabling without a cable needle, but knowing how to do it does have its advantages.
