Wow.. that is more than just OK..It looks FABULOUS!! It looks really long too.. how long is that.. I remember you said you used caron shadows.. how did you like it? Is it warm?.. this is definately on my to do list and I love seeing the finished ones.. I've had another cable scarf OTN for about 1 1/2 years.. (half done), but it is too hard to work on because I have to follow a pattern repeat of about 14 rows..
I think the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern is better.. because I could memorize the 2 rows and work on it anywhere..Love the colors too..

Thanks folks. Yep, ready just in time for the cold weather that's coming. I hope to get the hat done soon.

The scarf is about six feet long, it took three skeins of Caron Simply Soft Shadows. It feels really good and should be quite warm.
