This one felt like it might have gone on forever... but I'm soo very glad I plugged along because the end result is pretty.
Joe was joking that maybe Carmen wouldn't like it, and that I should keep it. Tempting as that sounds, it is going out in the mail this weekend to my dear friend.
Now I wonder how she'll feel about my handsome fella getting in a few model shots? Lovely scarf plus a few random dog hairs? Aah she knows me well enough, she'd probably expect nothing less.
So, the details:
- Pattern: 'Here and There Cables' by the incredibly talented Norah Gaughan (from the book 'scarf STYLE, Interweave Knits')
- Yarn: Red Rocks Fiber Works 'Paradise' (yes it is true to it's name) in colourway 'Green Grass'
- Mods: None really to speak of... I used a US 6 needle (instead of a 7) as that worked better with the thickness of the yarn. Pattern calls for you to knit for 72inches. I just carried on until I ran out of yarn - ending up at 64 inches long by 6.5 inches wide (after blocking).
It feels good when the effort invested was worth it!
