First cable project, first KAL -- woohoo!

First, thanks so much for letting me join your KAL! This is my first real cable project and my first knit along so this is doubly exciting. :)

Here's my Irish Hiking Scarf thusfar. I'm using Knit One Crochet Too Paintbox yarn in the Tandoor colorway. Besides being a little itchy, I really like this yarn. It works up easily and I love the way the colors flow into each other.

Also, note my stupid ultra-cool cable needle stand-in. (If anyone ever needs proof that I'm not worth the air I breathe, this may very well be it!) Sure, I could get up and walk the 20 feet into my living room to procure a real cable needle, but... well, I'm just so unequivocally awesome that getting it myself is beneath me. Hence, the screwdriver.

LOL! LOVE the screwdriver! I'm equally lazy, uh, creative enough to use pens and paperclips as cable holders. Beautiful colors!

Cute! Love those colors! And yeah I'm also guilty of using a bobby pin, or any othher handy straight object instead of a cable needle!

I think the screwdriver is *brilliant* - and I, too, fall victim to inertia (all too frequently...)

pretty colors, too!
