My first few inches of Irish Scarf

Hello, dear friends!

I joined both KAL (the Irish Hiking Scarf and the Conquering Cables). Since the project applies to both, here it is. I have begun my very first scarf with cables... following the pattern given by the blog's homepage. I am enjoying this very much. It knits up quite quickly, and the cable isn't difficult... I bought a cable needle and I enjoy it, although sometimes I am not very sure how to handle it when it's hanging in front of work. Sometimes it gets stucked with the work while I am trying to knit the first three stitches before those on the cable.. oh well :) About the yarn: It's called "Colore", by "Rubí" - this is made in Seville. I haven't been able to find it anywhere on the Internet. I am afraid it is an obscure brand made exclusively for a big commercial centre (El corte inglés). Anyway, here is the beginning of the scarf.

The yarn is multicoloured but the cables show up nicely. It really looks lovely, more than in the photographs (isn't that frustrating?). Anyway, I am going to continue this. I have two balls... it should server. They measure some 260meters together.

Would love to hear your comments :) Look how it mixes in a lovely way with my "ocean" ribbing scarf (also under "construction" :D
Love,
Flavio

Yours it the first scarf I've commented on. Although they all turn out soooo pretty, they tend to look similar. Yours is so cool! I love the colors! I would so wear that! Very "outstanding", heh heh, get it?

Hello! Yes it is :) I am so glad they opened one in my city. They have this "knitting corner" with all accessories and lots of yarn! :) wow :)

I usually chat with the woman there about projects and needles. It's such fun! Sometimes it looks like I am the only client :D

Love,
Fla
