Gift Knitting Revealed

This was finished a while ago and then it went to St. Louis, so now I can post details for the record:

 


This was my first cable project and I was very pleased with it. I picked out the color (or lack thereof) right after I finished my black purse. Having dealt with the joys of knitting black yarn (did I drop a stitch? did I add a stitch? how do I pick up the #+%*$! stitches at the base?) the cream color looked very soothing.

Pattern: Yours Truly Cabled Scarf from the one and only Jennifer P. at Gourmet Yarn
Needles: Size 15 Denises
Yarn: 2 skeins Crystal Palace Iceland Posted by Picasa

Awesome! I don't believe I have ever seen such a large cable. And it looks warm.

Your scarf is lovely. The cream color makes the cable very visible. We need a virtual KNIT IN!

Thanks all!

Kay--that scarf got done awhile ago, I'm still plotzing along on the scarf I had at the guild meeting, along with some bulky weight house socks on Magic Loop.
