Every autumn I pick up the knitting needles again, and last month I embarked upon this adorable cardigan which I fell in love with initially, but have recently started to hate as I have had to undo the cable pattern too many times. At the weekend, when I was working in my local gift store/coffee shop, I got chatting to a customer who was knitting as she ordered her coffee, and she told me about lifelines. I had never heard this term in relation to knitting before, (pardon my ignorance all you seasoned knitters out there), so at the end of my shift I dashed home to google it and found this fabulous tutorial. I have tons of little dental floss samples from my dentist, and I have now found a use for them….and I will be able to continue on my quest to complete this cardigan THIS fall, not next!
