Wow.. that is more than just OK..It looks FABULOUS!! It looks really long too.. how long is that.. I remember you said you used caron shadows.. how did you like it? Is it warm?.. this is definately on my to do list and I love seeing the finished ones.. I've had another cable scarf OTN for about 1 1/2 years.. (half done), but it is too hard to work on because I have to follow a pattern repeat of about 14 rows..
I think the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern is better.. because I could memorize the 2 rows and work on it anywhere..Love the colors too..

Thanks folks. Yep, ready just in time for the cold weather that's coming. I hope to get the hat done soon.

The scarf is about six feet long, it took three skeins of Caron Simply Soft Shadows. It feels really good and should be quite warm.

Honestly, Mason...this is the most attractive IHS I have seen! Wow! You should be very proud! This IHS has logged a lot of road miles, too! A real Road Warrior!

Kudos to both of you! :woot:

I think Walmart has Shadows, though they seem to have only Simply Soft regular, Brites and Tweed when I've been in.

More kudos, Mason! The scarf looks great!! I hope I can do as well when I tackle cables. I think it's cool too, that the scarf is so well traveled! In how many states do you think you worked on it?

Mason, it's wonderful!! I love the Shadows yarn, it looks great! I think it's very cool that it's been knit in so many states too :mrgreen: At some point you'll have to create a scarf pattern and name it after the highway you were traveling on when you made it!

Your scarf is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! I love the color. Until you said the yarn was Caron SS I thought it was Karaoke. The color way is very similar to the Karaoke I'm working with.
