Some of you may have seen the Irish Hiking Scarf (http://www.helloyarn.com/irishhikingcarf.htm) pattern online.
I have had this on my needles for WAY too long, and I finished it tonight at a knitting group meeting up here in NJ. :cheering:

The reasons I titled this "modified":
- I did the cables backwards (not because I'm clever, just because I didn't read the pattern right); they twist right instead of left :shrug:
- I didn't use a cable needle (not because I dislike them, this was just the first project I did after reading this site (http://wendyknits.net/knit/cablelesson.htm))
- I made it in 2 colors (not because I have any design skills, but because I bought the yarn at a time when I didn't know better about getting just one skein)

I love it though, and I'm so glad it's done!
Yarn: Paton's Classic 100 % merino
Needles: US 8 (5mm)

That's lovely!!! :inlove:

I've been doing my cabling without a needle lately. It's so much faster, and I don't seem to pull the stitches so far out of shape.

Loverly, Marce!!

And yes, how are you cabling with no cable needle--just leaving the stitches off the needle? I've tried doing that, but it freaks me out too much. :teehee:
