Russ's Cabled Scarf

This deep purple scarf is terrific. Gorgeous cable design at each end. Here's the note the knitter attached to her photo:

I love this cable pattern from Encyclopedia of Knitting.

Twist & Cable Knit Scarf - Merino Wool Blend

I love this one! This knitter did a beautiful job with the cable design, and the button addition is a nice touch. Can you imagine this one for Valentine's Day?

I am going to write up the pattern for this scarf soon for anyone that is interested. Favorite this photo and check back for a link to the free knitting pattern :)

I blogged about this scarf here:

Here's another view, maybe with better detail~

Do you have a favorite cable knit scarf pattern?  If you like to share, I'd love to see it, and feature it here.

It's Been a Long Long Time

Wow.  I have been away from my little blogs for quite some time.  It's been a busy time for me~  I've been taking lots of photos, and really enjoying my relatively new camera.  Been glad to have a "real" camera in hand again since my old film SLRs are now outdated.  Happily, I can still use my old lenses on the new one. 

I'll ease back into the swing of things with a new project I completed.  My daughter is in her second year at the University, and she wanted a white cable-knit scarf.  Visiting a yarn shop I used to work in years ago, I happened upon a scarf that looked just right.  It is cabled on both sides, and simple to do.  I added a 3" fringe to finish it off, as per my daughter's request. It is now mailed off, and being used!

Here are some photos:

Just getting started.  Worsted weight yarn, 6 stitch cables every 10 rows, 6 purl stitches in between.

Don't you just love to stop every few inches and admire your progress?

One skein done!   
This shows the cables on the other side.  I staggered the cables on the other side, starting 5 rows after I cabled the first side.  That way, every 5 rows I'm cabling.  Make sense?  

Without fringe, the scarf measures 74".
A fun and easy project!

I'm finally done with the body! The seed stitch bottom border felt like it took FOREVER! It looks cute so far, but I don't know if I could sit through that much seed stitch ever again.

Here's what I've mostly been working on lately-- a houndstooth pattern scarf made from organic cotton. I ordered the pakucho stuff from elann and it's awesome! Though it's not as soft as I expected, it has a nice feel and I really like all the history behind it. Plus you can get really nice colors but they're all undyed! Whee!

There is nothing like a natural yarn. The possibilities are endless. . . and any pattern knit in a natural yarn seems to pop.

Today I'm looking for anything that qualifies as a "natural knit." Could be yarn, color, organic fibers. . .
