Varigated Cables
I asked the question a few days ago about using cables and varigated yarn. I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Although, as many said, the cables are not as distinct as they would be with solid yarn I think I like the overall effect. I had a hard time getting a good picture, if I tried to take the whole scarf it REALLY was hard to see so I zoomed in on a section. Face to face the cables do show.

You can see them better if you click on the picture and enlarge it a bit. The yarn is Esperanza by Schaefer.

I have a question though.........

Do you "block" cables? The scarf (Irish Hiking scarf) is a bit drawn together and if I could block it a bit flatter I think the cables would pop out even more.
