Whew! This was a monster first cable project and it’s done and I love it! If you’re wanting to try a cable project, it isn’t nearly as hard as it looks. You can find the Hollygrove Scarf pattern here. Here’s mine fresh off the needles. I used Madelinetosh Vintage yarn and the color is Scarlet.
This was such a fun scarf, and not difficult at all! The only difficulty I had was remembering to click my row counter so I didn’t lose track of where I was and where I was going. I’m kinda used to that though . . not knowing where I’m going! 🙂
I gently washed it and blocked it.
Those blocking wires are evil little critters! That was torture getting those threaded through so I could block it.
There she is . . all pinned down to dry and then be nice and straight! Gorgeous . . if I do say so myself. Before blocking, it measured almost 7″ x 58″. After blocking, it measures 8″ x 67″ And, I’m going to start another one for a friend using this yarn.
I would like to have it finished by this time next week but somehow . . I doubt that will happen! Wish me luck and while you’re at it, wish me at least 40 hours in each day!
