Montana here I come!

I drove from Portland to Montana yesterday. I made it in about 8 hours. The drive was awesome and Montana is beautiful. Work brought me here.

Portland Spirit

Today I took a two hour cruise up the Willamette. I've done this before on jet boats, but this trip was more like a cruise - they served  lunch. Sort of fancy schmancy. I had a great time and it was just the right amount of time.

Cable Knit Throw

I love this color of yarn, and I love the cable knit pattern.

This is one of those projects that takes a while, and fills in the gaps between other projects. 

This throw was made by casting on 188 stitches, size 8 needle, medium yarn. KK, PP until desired length. Add one stitch in the middle of next row. 
Slip first stitch, (cable pattern), purl last stitch. 

Cable Pattern
1st row - ktb,p,ktb,*pp,kkkkkk,pp,ktb,p,ktb, start from * 
2nd row - opposite of first row. 
3rd row - cable 3 kkk, kkk3, k cabled 3, continue with pattern. 

Repeat third row ever 6th row. 

Repeat for desired length. 

Decrease 1 next row, KK, PP until desired length. 

Bind off. 

I added a slip stitch at the beginning of every row, and a purl stitch at the end of every row to make the work lay flat and to give it a nice clean edge. If you chose not to create the throw in this manner add three stitches in the beginning ribbing row, and decrease three when starting ending ribbing row.
