I did this while subbing a World History class last week. I had left it on the teachers desk while I greeted the students crawling in to class. One of them started to look at the cup really suspiciously. I told him, "you can grab it, no problem." He and a few others start to examine it with such a critical eye, I felt like I was trying to get it past a museum curator. Then they turn to me and say, "You did this miss?" I said yeah and they said, "you should be an art teacher". I chuckled and said "Maybe".

My latest project. I've been testing out different knitting patterns. This one is called Jumbo Cable. It's pattern is simple but you need patience. It goes like this:
26 stitches. First 5 and Last 5 make border.
RW 1,5,7,9,11,13,15: Knit
RW 2 (and all even number rows): Knit first 5, Purl, knit last 5
RW 3: Knit first 5, transfer 8 st to cable needle in the front, knit next 8 st, place st back on reg needle from cable needle and knit 8 st , knit last 5
RW 16: Purl
Repeat all Rows til desired length.
In case you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about here is a good tutorial I found on YouTube.
It's a lot of work but so beautiful.
Good Luck =)
