This is the first FO I've posted on craftster. Grin

I made my Aunt a green Irish Hiking Scarf for Christmas. A little early? Yes. But I am a known procrastinator, so it's a breakthrough for me.


I used two balls of Paton's Canadiana - I think the color was called Forest Green. It's a bit shorter than I wanted, but I have no more of the yarn! I never thought I'd need more than two balls for it.

So, what do you think?

Thank you!  Grin My next project is a pink cardigan for my grandma - I started it about two months ago, actually. It's sitting in my knitting bag, half done...I'm using the pattern for Sonnet (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTsonnet.html), except with seed stitch instead of garter stich.

That is so lovely! I imagine it took a giant amount of love slash patience with those cables. She's going to freak when she opens this at Christmas!

You'd be surprised! I thought it was going to be really tough but after the first 20 or so rows you don't even need a row counter as long as you pay attention. I only made one mistake, and believe me, I have very little experience with cables. I highly reccomend the pattern, which is available for free here: http://www.helloyarn.com/irishhikingscarf.htm. That site has a lot of other cool patterns too. The only complaint I have is that I didn't realize there would be a wrong side to the scarf, but if I'd thought it through i should've realized that.

I definitely think I'm going to have to make a few more of these in the time before Christmas.  Smiley

I like the pattern pic, but the yarn you chose really brings more texture to the cables, I love it!

Lovely!  I totally understand on the procrastinating.  I'm always desperately wandering the mall the week before Christmas, lol.  Maybe I should get inspired and start early like you... hmmm...
