WIP - Cabled Tie
After much improvisation and frogging I have finally come up with a stitch pattern I like for the cabled tie.

Mason, I love the pattern, but is it really going to be orange???????

Just curious ~~~~~~~~

(If I was married to you, I'd be standing with my hands on my hips saying, "That's not going to be orange, is it?")

Technically it's mango. The color doesn't show perfectly in the pic. It's closer to the color of cantaloupe.

Yeah, ok, it's orange. What's wrong with orange?

The color actually shows the pattern well! I'm thinking a well-dressed man can probably coordinate that orange tie to look nice with something or other! (Oops sorry, Mango tie)
