Here and There Cables

I had no idea that the Ruffles scarf was so popular until I started reading blogs again! It is cute & I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's progress.

The scarf that I had to do first was the Here and There Cables. I started it a few days ago and it's going pretty well. It's my first time using a cable needle and it's not that difficult. It's awkward more than anything.

Here's a shot of my scarf :

    The cables look great! This is the 2nd on my "have to make" list from this book. I'm one of those ruffle people :-)

    I love this scarf and am planning on knitting this scarf (for myself) when I join the knit along, but seeing your version in pink makes me think this would be the perfect scarf for my mother in-law! She requested a feminine scarf in pink...I think this is it! I don't know why I didn't think of it before!

    This will be my first cable project, as well. I'm glad to hear that it isn't too difficult. Keep up the good work, your scarf looks great.

    I'm about to start this scarf as well. I did a little trial run, casting on 50 stitches, and after 15 rows, started to wonder if I got something wrong. The cables just didn't look right. I think it may have had to do with having fewer stitches, but I thought I'd ask you if you ran into anything weird with yours. Also (dumb question time), when you slip the first 6 stitches onto the cable and then slip the "last stitch" from the cable needle back to the left needle to purl it, is it the last stitch that you slipped onto the cable needle or the first? I'm guessing last, but I just want to make sure. Thanks!!

    ooh! I like that! What book is the pattern from? I think I need to hunt down it down and have a look!

    Hi there! I was looking at your scarf and it's gorgeous! I've been trying to make that for about 3 weeks now, and I just can't get it right. MY cables are wonky. I've made cables before, too, which is the funny part- just not in the past two years. (Sigh.) I'd love to see a new pic.
