Eunny demonstrates two methods for fixing mis-crossed cables on this episode's Getting Started segment. Even when you're paying close attention, all knitters have been faced with this problem or something similar when cabling. The good news is, this common knitting mistake can easily be fixed without having to rip back your entire knitted project and Eunny shows you how.
Eunny is wearing the Manteo Cardigan by Lisa Hoffman, from Interweave Knits Spring 2012 magazine.
Shown here on the mannequin is the Livingstone Cardigan by Amy Miller, from the Winter 2011 issue of Interweave Knits magazine.

All the Accessorize Me! patterns will be available for download at KnittingDailyTV.com by September 2012.

Eunny joins yarn expert Clara Parkes on another new segment to Knitting Daily TV called the Yarn Spotlight. Eunny and Clara will dive into yarn characteristics and yarn's best uses, as well as show examples of yarns available on the market today.
On episode 901's first-ever Yarn Spotlight, Eunny and Clara talk classic, 100% wool yarns. Focusing on The Yarn Company's Soulwool 100% merino yarn (multi-colored) and Halcyon Yarn's Botanica wool (orange), Clara and Eunny talk about wool's characteristics and when you'll want to use this classic wool when knitting. Also shown is Casecade Yarn's 220 (dark orange yarn).
Taking it one step further. . .

Eunny finishes up the first episode of Series 900 with a quick tip for reading cable charts. They can look daunting, but by following the key and breaking down each row of a cable chart, a cable project can be accomplished without worry.
