I made this scarf for my sister for X-mas. TOOK FOREVER. But I'm soo proud!




The colors are a little off, it's actually a really pretty baby pink.

It's Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, and was knit on my Denises.

Pattern: http://smariek.blogspot.com/2006/12/persephone.html

Thanks~ It's the most complex cabling project that I've done so far.

The cabling was fun, and a bit mind-numbing after you memorize the pattern. Close to 900 cable crosses though. haha.
