Yeah, I know. Everyone's done one of these, but what can I say? I like it.

Very spiffy Mason... this is on my long, long list of things to knit.

Is that the Caron Shadows? I like the color change in it.

I haven't yet but it is on my list now that I have seen yours. Yours is beautiful. Is it really tricky? Would it work for first time cables? I think it would be a nice scarf for my guy.

Yeah is my first cables project. Much easier than I had imagined.

And the yarn is Caron Shadows.

I went to A.C. Moore after work to see this Caron Shadows of which you speak. Soooooooft. I really liked it!!! I can't wait to see how your colors come out so I can use that to better judge the color I want to get.
