Cabled Scarf

I finished the cabled scarf I’ve been working on for the past week and half or so.  Here’s my “I’m happy to be modeling my new scarf” picture.

And here’s my “It’s 80 degrees and I’ve got wool wrapped around my neck” picture.

The pattern is #8 Cabled Scarf by Elena Malo from the Holiday 2008 issue of vogue knitting.  The yarn is Knit Picks Gloss DK 70% merino wool and 30% silk.  The colorway is called Robot.  It grew like mad when I blocked it.  I knit the scarf to about 5 feet long but after washing it was over 6 feet.  I like longer scarves anyway, but I’m glad I didn’t make a sweater or something that needed to be fitted instead.

Overall I like it, but it’s too hot to get that excited about a wool scarf.  Also, it’s not reversible so I have to pay attention to whether it’s “right-side up.”
Only 8 more projects on the needles.
