Using Cara's wonderful tutorial, I was able to easily -- yes! EASILY! -- fix my error laiden cables from yesterday's swatch.  All you need is a little cutting, a little grafting, and little end weaving, which result in beautifully twisting cables and high self esteem.  I highly recommend that you knit a few wrong cables and then fix them for yourself -- it will make you day.

And for those rule followers who don't consider this a new swatch, I also knit these pedestrian swatches for a finishing class I'm teaching next week :-)

Yarn: Cascade 220 in the pink of all pinks
Needles: US 8
Techniques: Fixing mis-twisted cables using a little cutting, a little grafting, and a little end weaving.  Excellent tutorial can be found here.

YAY! So glad it worked for someone OTHER than me, you know? Makes it more real. And I'm glad the tutorial was helpful.

So, call me crazy, but I liked the unrepaired version!
