Ok so a full lenghth scarf of this would have made me BATTY!  so I did about a 3/4's lenght then casted off the stitches in the middle. Knit a little on the border then casted on for the middle again, making a hole to pull the scarf through.  Here is my cousin linz modeling it for us.  I gave it to her for Christmas.

Going batty was exactly the reason for me NOT knitting an Irish Hiking scarf!
Started out full of good intentions but realized after an inch or two of cabling that a scarf would be soooo much more.
I quickly changed my I.H. scarf to I.H. wristwarmers. And found that to be bearable - 6 inches rather than 56.

Never thought of only  knitting a 3/4 length scarf and then doing somehing different with it.
Yours looks very good! And Cuz Linz looks as if she likes it too.

I didn't get past looking at the pattern. I thought "NO way I could make a whole scarf. Maybe I'll make a clutch" That didn't happen either. I just don't have the attention span for simple cables. The scarf looks excellent!! Such a great idea you came up with, too.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

please don't be scared of the irish hiking scarf!
  it's really not that bad, once you get past the first cable it just repeats and repeats, and of course it takes a long time, cause scarves are long. I've never met a scarf that was quick to make! but of all the projects that I have made, the Irish hiking scarf is my favorite, and have recieved the most attention. my advice is to work on the scarf in between other projects, and just keep plugging along. it really is worth it!

beautiful yarn color. I am working on the irish hiking scarf right now and I try not to think about how long it will take to finish cause I hate it taking forever. Smiley Since I learned cables just so I could make this scarf I want to finish it. I would recommend at least trying the pattern. It really is simplistic but still enough to keep you interested.

I also learned cables for this scarf.  And don't get me wrong I love it.  I just had to put it down multiple times because I was getting bored.  I started it in like september and finished it Christmas eve.  That is how much i put it down, and I didn't even do the full lenght.

One of the things i love about knitting is the ability to pick things up and put them down.  It feeds my ADD well.

 Cheesy I do alot of putting down and picking up too. I will probably do it many times before I finish.
