FO: Reversible Cable Scarf
This is my Reversible Cable scarf from Cables Untangled. It took me a long time to knit because I was knitting other things and because the pattern got a little boring- I hate to say that, but it's true. I find scarves take me longer to knit than anything else!
I used Louet Riverstone in Eggplant. It took about 2.5 skeins. The colour doesn't look much like the pictures, but more like #2 than #1.

Very nice and I the color. I was just reading the Yarn Harlot's "Knitting Rules" book and she was talking about how scarves should not be a beginner project because they take soooooo long and can get boring -- I'm currently working on the palindrome scarf, which I love, but it's taking me forever because it bores me ...

Thanks everyone! I think I'm not in love with the colour anymore and that's why I'm sort of blah about it!
I read that in Knitting Rules! too gal51 and I always recommend beginners start with something like a dishcloth.
I love scarves, but I think I need to find one that will be more challenging next time. I also love cables, but I think I'm beyond some of the "easy" patterns!
