Well, I did a wet block (wish I had seen the suggestion to do the spray block first) yesterday and the scarf is currently drying. I THINK I achieved my desired result, I did pick and mold the cables when I lay it to dry. I'll know better when it's dry. I'll let you know what the end result is.
I am also working on an Irish Hiking Hat to go with the scarf and I gotta say the varigated cables are starting to grow on me. I think Lady Violet is right, it adds intrigue!
GinnyG on Ravelry, I'd LOVE to be in your "friends"
