ON - Good Ole Cabled Scarf
 
Here's my scarf I'm making in Patons Classic Wool Merino in Dark Grey Mix. I had a 50% off coupon at Joanns. LOL Does working a scarf like this get faster? I hope so or it'll take forever! The yellow is a lifeline made out of embroidery thread. Thank god for lifelines! :shock: :roflhard:

Jan, that looks great! Was it what we thought, that you have to do a few full pattern repeats to see and understand how that cable behaves?
As far as it going any faster.......er........ Just enjoy the process! :devil:

As you get farther along, you'll get so used to the seed stitch that you won't even think about it after a while. It's looking great so far, though!

It looks great, Jan! :cheering:

And you'll find that as you go, you'll establish a rhythm and won't have to "think," which will make the knitting speed up--hooray for that! :D

Jan,
I am knitting the same scarf with the same yarn...color and all. It does get a bit faster, but it still takes me more time than "normal" stitch patterns. It looks great :D

Jan, I WON'T tell you that I've had this project on the needles for months :D But once you get used to the pattern, it'll start going a little faster.

Thanks all! I've got another couple inches on this scarf. Now that my Knit Picks yarn order is here though....it might get put on the back burner. Not finishing one thing before starting another is gonna be hard though. :shock: :roflhard:
