I think you have a cute mug. And you may now hate cables, but I'll bet your partner won't!!

Oh I think your mug is very handsome! ;) The scarf is gorgeous!

Why do you hate cables?

I think he meant that he is tired of cables... Like I got tired of garter after my first scarf...

Precisely. I used to love cables, before this scarf. Now I"m sick of them. This pattern involves this pass repeated 4x.

6 stitches to cn
P1, K3, P1
Move the last stitch slipped to the cable needle back to the left needle and purl
P1, K3, P1 from cn
P2, K3, P2

I am so sick of that row.

Yeah, I agree. When you have a lot of cables like that you don't want to see one again for awhile. :teehee:

Knit a cabled scarf in the very same color, the more cables I knit, the more I like them. Going to cast on a cabled sweater for my DH in a few weeks, excited to get it started!

Your scarf is great, and if it doesn't warm up here soon, he'll be wearing it on July 4th.

Well it sure turned out beautiful!! I haven't done cables for a while now. Wouldn't mind them for a project but sure don't wanna do 'em all the time.


and PS - your mug isn't ugly at all!! Quite handsome!

It is called "Here and There Cables" by Norah Gaughan. I think that I got it out of the Fall 2009 Interweave Knits but I'm not 100% sure. I can let you know when I get home and actually get my hands on the magazine that it came from.

I know. It's almost like an abusive relationship. The cables beat me up, but I still come back for more eventually.

LOL, yeah I was quite fond of that scarf when I saw your pic of it. Is it ONLY that row repeated or is there more to it?

There are 6 other rows that repeat a different pattern. It's very easy though. The only hard part is the 7th cable row.

I have yet to go after socks as a project. I think that I would get bored with it. Or I would get one done and go, "Oh god. Seriously I have to do another one."

I did love the link that someone posted on how to do two socks a once DK.

Love the scarf I think it really looks nice, but like you, will not be doing cables any time soon. Look at the Aran Cable Blanket I posted you will see why. Did not mind some scarves I have done with fewer smaller cables, but still going to avoid any for a while that is for sure.

I found the magazine that it was in. It was in the Interweave Knit Accessories from Fall 2009.

It's perfect! I made the same scarf for my son, and I felt the same way when I was *finally* finished. :)

It's gorgeous....and you do NOT have an ugly mug, most definitely. You're a cutie.
I didn't know a person could get tired of cables, will have to try a scarf like that now. Thanks for posting the pic and the pattern.

Did you use large needles and yarn? I might do that.... (and how many stitches?)....guess I'm asking for the whole pattern, just love it.

a scarf is such a great gift....like giving a nice, warm hug that lasts forever!

If I remember it calls for a lot of stitches for the width that you get. The cables end up scrunching it together a lot so you cast on something like 90 stitches on size 8 needles with a worsted weight yarn. So you only end up with about 6 inches of width for a decent amount of stitches.
