YARN ALONG


I continue to knit on my Reflections cabled scarf. I have experienced many frustrating moments, starting the scarf over no less than 5 times before crying "it’s not me the pattern has an error". And yes it did that is now corrected by the designer, (my friend actually figured out the error and we sent the info to the designer). I have dropped a stitch twice and twice had to rip back, a few wee mistakes that I noticed but can live with, or better stated my son will never noticed when gifted to him. I must say though, I LOVE this pattern and what an amazing learning experience! I am using yarn grown and processed in Ireland Black Water Abby Yarns, and what a treat to use yarn from Ireland where my family is from. Also,  Alice Starmore book has been helpful as a reference.
Cables, who knew how much fun they could be!

It looks wonderful! I love cables too. They look really effective.

That scarf is going to be awesome when it's finished! You can't get more yarny than Black Water Abbey - it's so nice when pattern, yarn and a bit of sentimentality come together in a project.

So great that you are working through it -I haven't been brave enough to try cables yet.
