The Mariners Revenge!



I started a Quick Cable scarf today, again using cheap-o Lion Brand Yarn. I'm not too snotty about what I'm using if it still yields a decent result. I saw the pattern in the back of Knit.1 and it's free on Lionbrand.com, if you sign up :-) I really like how exaggerated the cable looks in that super chunky yarn. On size 13 needles I'll be done in a day or so.




Oh! BTW, the pic was taken with my new phone <3333 I've got a Mint Choclate and I have to say, it's pretty adorable :-)

I've noticed some bloggers out there want to send SnAIL MaiL X-mas CarDs, so if any of you guys are intrested email me your address and we can also exchange some ephemera...

That's it for today!

Very nice looking scarf. I love cables. They make me feel like I'm doing magic.

I just finished a cabed scarf in cashmere/merino and silk/ baby llama. I don't know what the difference between baby llama and regular is but is all soft and cabled. I really like that pattern though. I might have to try it

oh, LOVE the cable!

i'm with sean, cables feel magical, it feels like i'm totally screwing up and then VOILA! (and they *totally* impress non-knitterly people, because they look so, well, magical...)

as we have a baby llama (she'll be 10 weeks tomorrow, i just put up new pics of Pepper today, she's SOOO cute, lol) i can say that her fleece seems to be way softer than the adult llamas, although our 4 grown-up llamas have pretty nice fiber as well. (i don't know exactly what qualifies as "baby" for marketing purposes--less than a year? 2 years? llamas reach maturity--or breeding age, more properly--by age 2)

but they young'uns are pretty darn soft, so i'm guessing eikon must have some awfully nice fiber there, mmmm! *drool*

Hey...tons of that super expensive stuff is acrylic or very scratchy wool. There is also very decent wool yarn made for cheap.
It kills me when I see people appologising for the yarn they use. ( Not that you necessarily are )
People pay too much attention to the status of their yarn in my humble opinion...maybe they think it will improve their knitting. ;)

By the way...you do nice cabling.
