Here's my entry for the New Years Resolution Knitting Challenge! A Cabled skinny Scarf! I've wanted to start cabling but I've been too timid... so here goes nothing!!
I took 2 pictures of the material with a date - one is from my stitch n bitch catalog and the other is this weekend's newspaper (Superbowl weekend, 2/2/08 Wink )





WIP pictures!
(2/3/08)

2/15/08
I finished last night!! I waited til this morning to take the picture, but here it is!!


I am VERY happy with the way it came out  Cheesy

its just the yarn - obviously.

I started my entry. Its not done yet, I just wanted to make the post saying "Yup I'm doing this, here's the start of my entry" - And the day its completed I'll take the finishing picture and add it. I thought that was allowed..?

ok phew!

I'm no sure what yarn it is, except that its wool (burn test!)
My nana had bought a bunch of yarn from a store going out of business, and a lot of their hanks had no labels other than a price.   Sad

Well good for you for trying out cables (a little secret: they're always easier than they look!). I think that yarn will look great cabled up with the color changes Cheesy Can't wait to see the finished product.

Just a quick question: the burn test is singe = wool/natural fiber (I know cotton will stay on fire for a bit) and melt = synthetic?

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

Thanks!! It does seem easy - after this I'll have to try the Fetching gloves on Knitty.com!

and yes, if it smells like burning hair or flesh, its animal fiber, burning leaves/earth is a plant fiber, and melting is synthetic (yay for nana's! Smiley )

Well I'm about half done.
Man cabling can be tedious work....there have been a couple where I went "has it been 6 rows?" and kinda have to feel if the tension is gone to get it. (I am a super slacker about counting, and with 2 little boys, sometimes things get set down anywhere!)
Other than that, its going well!! I'm going to put it in gear this week and try to finish is
