Here and There Cables

Here's what I've been able to complete over the holidays. It's been my traveling, "mindless" project to work on while visiting and watching movies. It's an incredibly easy scarf once you get through the cable row once to try it out. I need a new scarf, so this one will be mine when I'm finished. I'm using a size 6 needle and Mountain Colors Weavers Wool in Spruce-- I was able to get 3 skeins of it for $20 at a LYS in Springboro, Ohio while visiting my parents over the summer.



I really like the way it's knitting up, but I still have some pesky holes because of the nature of the "reversible" cables. I'm hoping they hide themselves a little better when I block.

    I am so glad to see someone working on this scarf as it's the next scarf from this book that I want to make. I was one of the many ruffle scarf knitters :-)

    And glad to hear that the pattern is easy to follow.

    I'm sure your scarf if beautiful, but the picture is so dark I can't see anything on my computer.

    Bee-yoo-tee-full!! I'm sure it will look even better when you block it, but for real: it looks great now.

    That is so lovely. I'm starting one myself this week. Well, it's my 4th try, on the same scarf. I've done cables before, butfor some reason, I'm just not getting this. Did yours look all wonky in the beginning?
