I finally have photos of the scarf I made as a gift for my friend Kate! The pattern was even written by a craftster, kjtendyke. Yay!
The yarn is Knitpicks Andean Silk, the color is Bluebell. I used a little more than six balls (such a deal at $3.29 a ball!) and I made it shorter than the pattern - the pattern has each tube knit to 90" for a six foot long scarf. I knit mine to 75" and the scarf is a little over five feet long.
I used Knitpicks options needles in size 4 and 6 with a 40" cable, using the magic loop technique. This is a great project for learning that technique - it's a whole lotta circular knitting!
Huge, huge success! It's surprisingly fun to knit, and I looked forward to my subway ride every day when I would listen to knitting podcasts and work on the scarf!
