Stupid broad shoulders....

While I am quite attached to my shoulders, they provide me no end of trouble finding good shirts.

Computer Case

After all that trouble with cabling, the case ended up being too big! So here is the case and the cabling, I will be adding a compartmentalized liner later.

Fisherman's rib hat

Here it is! It's simple and nice, made with peace fleece instead of cascade pastazza or whatever. It worked out quite well! Fisherman's rib is AMAZINGLY spongy and lofty and just all-around fun to squeeze. I will make ALL hats with fisherman's rib... maybe.

Regarding the cabling on the cabled computer case pattern in Knitting With Balls:

The WS rows are symmetrical, so they can be read from either direction, but the RS rows should be read from Right to Left, with each "chunk" of cable being read as it would from L to Right, but compensating from the fact you are flipping the work.

In short: I think I just needed to learn how to correctly read a cabling pattern...
