The Colinette Jitterbug that would have been Nebulas is now becoming Maebys.

I don't have the 20 years handy that I think it would take me to knit the Nebulas, and how the test knitters did it in one week I will never know. Too much damn fiddly k1tbl and "cable 1 in back, but knit it from the back loop, and then purl the next one, or maybe you could purl it and then knit it tbl off the cable needle, or maybe you'd like these other half-dozen ways to move two tiny stitches around while you spend two entire socks never looking up from the charts because repetition is for losers."

Screw that. Pretty, but not worth it. Enjoying Maeby so much more.
