WIP - Palindrome Scarf
I wasn't too sure how this would look in all black, but I think it's turning out better than I expected. I added two cables to the width and am cabling every 7th row instead of every 5th.

Mason,
I love it. I am almost wishing I had done mine wider for my guy. Too late now so he had better like it anyway!

Mason, you look great in your IHS and hat! I see you're cabling again -- addictive, isn't it? I like the additional width for the Palindrome scarf. It looks great! Is it hard to work in all black?

Well, it is a pretty cool design. I like that the cables show on both sides.

Thanks.

Not hard at all, especially with the Options as the contrast of the black against the shiny needles is very good.

I started it with the every 5th row called for in the pattern but with the wider width it just didn't look right to me.
