I'd never knitted cables before until last night, when I started the Irish Hiking Scarf.  It's really easy and fun!  If you can knit and purl, you can make this scarf.  In fact, it's soo simple that perhaps there's no need for a knit-along.  I'd still love to see what others come up with.  Anyone care to give it a go?

I just started on this scarf, too!  Actually, I started last week at our knitting group (I'm not quite the knitting addict yet, so I'm only knitting like once or twice a week).  This is the first thing I've knitted with cables as well, so it's pretty exciting!  I was afraid that they wouldn't show, but I think they're coming out pretty nicely.  


I'm using Rowan Kid Classic -I've got a few colors of it: 846 is a dark blue, 817 is a brown, and 828 is whitish.  (Got them for 40% off, too! Grin) So, I think I'm going to do a couple stripes or something.. I'm not sure how the stripes will turn out with the cables, but I'm hoping it will be cool.

Wow!  That scarf looks sooo beautiful!  Oh, I'd love to try KC.  I just saw some at my lys and the colors are heavenly.  I can't wait to see your stripes!

Thanks! I like the look of yours better, though -your cables look crisp!
I was dreading working on the second sock in a pair for my Mom, so my Lady suggested a scarf as a quick, easy "in-between" kinda project... but then it took forever to find a scarf that wasn't too girly.  I think this one will be pretty cool!   Smiley

Why must socks come in twos?  If I ever figure out how to knit socks, my recipients will get ONE each.  None of this TWO business.  I bought two Addis and some Lorna's Laces and thought I was gonna whip out the socks with the two-circs method.  Ha!  I did about a centimeter of ribbing and thought I was gonna die.  Plus it looked like a saggy, holey net. It's really nice of you to make your mom two socks.

OOH! I have about a foot of this scarf done in Wool Ease, Heather. It's a present for my husband for Christmas.
And it's GORGEOUS.

The only thing I regret is that it's not very "drapey" but he's not a very drapey kindof a guy, so it'll all work out ok.

Hmm. . . I'm think lengthwise stripes, the cables in one of the colors.  Or, perhaps, a two-colored cable . . . Must see what I have in the statsh.

I am going to be starting that this week I think.  It is going to be a gift for my DH.

Most knitters drink tea or coffee whilst knitting..... I drink bourbon.

i'll join this one, but i'm modifying it a bit.  i didn't like the WS of my last cable scarf, so i'm going to CO 84 st, and knit in the round, like a big long tube. 

thanks for starting this KAL.  your scarves look great.

Kimmy, my scarf isn't drapey either.  It's more like a cabled plank.  Would using bigger needles make my next scarf less stiff?
