Yeah, I know. Everyone's done one of these, but what can I say? I like it.

That looks great! Your cables are perfect and your stitches are so even. Wonderful job!!

Very spiffy Mason... this is on my long, long list of things to knit.

Is that the Caron Shadows? I like the color change in it.

I haven't yet but it is on my list now that I have seen yours. Yours is beautiful. Is it really tricky? Would it work for first time cables? I think it would be a nice scarf for my guy.

Yeah is my first cables project. Much easier than I had imagined.

And the yarn is Caron Shadows.

I went to A.C. Moore after work to see this Caron Shadows of which you speak. Soooooooft. :) I really liked it!!! I can't wait to see how your colors come out so I can use that to better judge the color I want to get.

You did? Cool. It is really nice. I was torn between the blue and the green but since it's called an Irish scarf I went with the green.

Mason,
Your cables look great! Isn't it a fun knit? I still have mine about a third of the way done...started too many other projects...LOL! I'll have to check out that Caron Shadows...is it really soft? Is it wool or acrylic?
Thanks,
Merry :)

It's an acrylic but it's really soft.

Mason I love it!That yarn adds just enough color variation to it without making the detail of the cables disappear.

I absolutely love your scarf. Your cable work is perfect! Thanks for posting about the Caron Shadows yarn. I live in a rural area and hadn't heard of or seen this in stores around here yet.

Hi Mason :waving:

I have searched through the three Irish Hiking Scarf threads that you started, and one other thread for the Irish...but I can't find any links to the pattern! Was your pattern a "free online"...or...a pay-for at the LYS?

I have seen the pattern...but can't remember where...and I can't find it in any of my files or internet favorites!

Your yarn really is nice. I saw the progress photo on your "IRISH...continued" thread...but can't see where you made the Aaaargh mistakes. Well, the errors must have been farther into the progress.

Keep with it. It is a scarf that is well worth it. It will look great on you!

It looks beautiful!!! So even and the yarn was a great choice. I'm working on the same scarf right now, only I changed it to do only 2 cables instead of three because I'm using a pretty bulky yarn. I tried it twice with two different worsted yarns and it looked great but it always felt too "thin" or something. I'm much happier now!

Thank you so much! I am on the lookout for some Karaoke colorway yarn...like Ingrid used on her scarves...her photos are posted HERE (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=61208) at KH. You just gotta see them! They are fabulous. She has a knack for marrying just the right yarn and patterns!!!!
