One done, another one on the way

Here are the long due photos of the Irish hiking scarves.
I finished the first one about 3 weeks ago. I am not sure I like the stripes, and I should have used smaller needles for the ribbing but hey, you learn as you go. I wanted it wider so I added a 4th cable.
Then I started another cable scarf, using Andean silk from Knitpicks - I love the yarn and the colour. Here, to make it wider, I added 2 stitches between each cable.

3 skeins Patons Classic Wool in Worn Denim, Grey Mix and Aran White
