Karen,

Now, what do we have to do for your husband to build you a studio?  Wink  Because I am all for it.  Meanwhile, my dear, you do need better hiding places for your yarns.  They can't complain about what they can't see, hmm, now, can they?  Laughing  This is where being creative is a plus!  Laughing

Melanie,
I did manage to get a pic, it's not great, but it shows the cables.



This is the one from the pattern in Kim Guzman's book that called for an I hook, but I used the P
It's not finished, so I haven't "evened" up the sides yet. Wink

But you see how the WW almost appears to be bulky?

I can't finish it until I can get to Jo Ann and get more yarn, but I'll need more to make the hat anyway.

Still holding breath and crossing fingers. Smile

Melanie,
Well I've made the eyeball part in a pretty sky blue for the foundation color and the plan is to paint the iris first and let it dry, then add the marbling, and when that is dry fill in the spaces with the blue. It may or may not work out, but the fact is that my hands aren't as steady as they used to be, and my eyes don't work as well. So it will have to be "good enough". Laughing

I've lost count of the number of baby blankets and afghans I've done in that diagonal pattern. It's just sooo easy, and when I was working nights I needed easy in order to save my brain for work. Tongue Out
I'm actually thinking of making a dish towel in it, then topping it with the cabled topper. I may like it, or not, either way it's for myself.

I finished up all my loose ends and actually managed to take a couple of pictures yesterday, still have to put them on the computer in order to see if they turned out.

Yeah we know that white stuff has a purpose, and still reserve the right to curse it. Yell

Sherry,

Argh, I think you're right about the metal of the strings being too much for the floss.  Undecided  I agree, bedspread cotton...though I wouldn't be unhappy at least trying the worsted cotton, just for giggles.

They buy whole sets for the thinnest string, I'm guessing?  Is that the one that always breaks?

Glad the Rustoleum would stick to the larger strings!  They must be made rough for the best sound, perhaps?  I know almost nothing about it.  I had a guitar ages ago, but it was stolen.  Cry

Hmm, I would still suggest trying the tool dip...plastic sounds like it would be a bear, but tool dip should be more rubbery than plastic.  Smile  I don't have any tool dip, or I'd try that!  Anyway, I'd think that would be enough not to have any slippage.  Okay...halfway...I just asked hubby and he confirmed that tool dip is rubbery.  Smile

Good point about the wire cutters...have done the same thing, grrrrrrrrr!  Yell  Though with this, I was thinking to keep working until a string runs out, perhaps picking up another if it doesn't seem like enough.  It would be interesting to see how big of a bracelet one string alone would make!  Smile  Best part of all...in theory...no cutting required!  Smile

I love to  combine diferent stitches into one work, like this blanket i did last week
