Remember when I showed you a picture of this? This is the Tangled Cable Scarf from Vogue Knitting Winter that I will NEVER make again. It is the most ridiculous scarf pattern EVER! But isn't it pretty? (Come on people! I need affirmation here!)It is a Christmas present (a little late) for my dear friend Meagan (this isn't her....but looks JUST like her). Our deal is we either make each other a gift or only buy a small item. The problem is we tend to try and top last year's handmade Christmas gift. Next year she'll have to get a lung from me cause I gave two arms and wrist for this gift. You know me...I always do things a little different than the pattern calls for. I used Patons Shetland Chunky yarn instead of the cashmere (sorry Meagan!) and a size 10 1/2 circular needle. I didn't use a stitch marker (much to Alohaknitter's dismay) or a cable needle. Who knows if the gauge is correct or not cause I never check gauge I just pray it turns out ok. I got a lecture from Alohaknitter on this the other day too. It wasn't pretty!
