I would like to knit the Here and there cables scarf (by Norah Gaughan) from Scarf Style. Has anyone knit this, or do you want to join the scarf style knit along site with me and knit it? http://scarfstyle.blogspot.com/

I'm also interested in knitting Ene's scarf , which is a lace shawl/ scarf

I'm interested.  I can start after x-mas.  What are the yarn requirements? ( Don't have the book, I get it from the library.)

I started this scarf last month.  It's not difficult, just time consuming for me because I'm knitting on #5 needles.  I'll post pics when I get a chance.

The suggested yarn is Reynold's Odyssey, which you can see here: http://www.yarn.com/yarns-knitting/reynolds-odyssey.html

The colorway they used is #408 light green. I think the colorway is gorgeous, but I want to ding a substitution because it would cost $80 to make the scarf with this yarn (you are supposed to have 8 balls of yarn for a 7.5 x 72" scarf.

I also want to start after X-mas. This page hosts a knitalong for the book. so you might want to check it out.

Will tell you once I find a subtitution I want to get for the yarn.

Thanks for the yarn info.  I've already decided to use elann.com's Peruvian Highland Wool.  Can't beat the price unless you go with knitpicks.com's Wool of the Andes which doesn't come in as many colors (though it certainly has its place in my stash, too.)

Happy knitting!

Mine is from the library too  Smiley


Btw---what do you think about the 'spring meadows' yarn from this page at elann for this project?

What kind of yarn are you using? I think I've decided on Cascade 220 quatro. I guess I would need 4 skeins because according to the book they used about 800 yards of yarn...with 4 skeins of 220 that would be 880 yards. I wonder if I could get away with 3 skeins and 660 yards and just not make the scarf 72". I wondered if they used ALL of the yarn to make their scarf 72" because I would be happy with a 60" scarf.

Hadn't thought of Cascade 220 Quatro.  Not a bad idea.  I, too, would like to use less yarn and just make a shorter scarf, so we'll see.

Long live the library!

I'm using Knitpicks Andean Silk.  I think I bought 7 skeins, but I'll probably have one left over.

A link, for inspiration.

Hers is so beautiful.  Love the Robin's Egg Blue.  I'm going for 3 skeins Cascade Heathers (it's their merino 220 worsted) in a blue-green color.
