Picking it up again...

This is my first post to this KAL. I started my scarf a while back and it's my first cable project. Not nearly as hard as I thought it would be, but it does take some time, doesn't it? I'm using Wendy Aran 25% wool, 75% acrylic. It's kind of nice because it's machine washable and cool tumble dry. It's a lovely eggplant color. Here's my progress so far!

First Irish Hiking Scarf/First time with cables

Hi, this is my first attempt at the Irish Hiking scarf and my first time knitting cables. I love how much fun this pattern is! I knit this scarf for a friend of the family, he lives in NY. I used Knit Pick's Swish Superwash yarn in Dublin on size 9 needles.

My first Irish scarf.....!

I just got my invitation to join and am so excited. I love the pattern and will be making many more. I finished my first one while waiting for the invite. I made it in Wool-Ease varigated "Wood". It is a gift and I wanted it to be washable. The colors are not true in the picture, but I think the picture displays the cables well. I will be starting anther soon. Thanks for the pattern and the invite!


My first - but not my last IHS

I´m from Austria and I like cable patterns! Now I began knitting the IHS - I found that pattern on Ravlery and I thought it is time to join the group. I´m knitting with yarn from Gedifra Volata Tweed. I think it will be a nice scarf. I would like to wear it now. Many greetings from snowy Austria Susanna.

Finished my first Irish Hiking Scarf

This my first Irish Hiking Scarf and sure to be one of many. The pattern repeat was simple to learn and made it a project I could easily pick up and put down. This one is done with Cascade 220 Quattro. It's for a knitalong I'm doing on Ravelry with the Nora Roberts group. We're reading some of her books set in Ireland (Gallagher Series, Born In series and Circle trilogy) and making this scarf, the wristwarmers and one of the hats. Come join us if you like!
