The scarf went back to the WIP abyss until last month, when I felt so bad that I had let this scarf slide for almost a year and a half. With gritted teeth, I wallowed through the last half of the scarf with the help of many Korean drama episodes (which is why I know the word for gift in the Korean language) and finally finished it! Whew! Oh, but the story is not over. I soaked the scarf and got ready to block...and left the scarf in a bucket for about 5 days. Not good! I finally blocked it and let it lie around for two more weeks before I got around to photographing it this past Sunday. I think it's safe to say that this scarf and I were just not meant to get along.
The pattern is the Reversible Cabled Scarf by Kris Hanson. This is one of those patterns that I really wanted to knit, but I had no reason to knit it. I was ecstatic at the opportunity to make one for my dad, until he said he wanted a black scarf. Knitting in black is not fun, I can tell you right now. The yarn I used made up a bit for the color though - Dream in Color Classy in the Black Pearl colorway. The yarn was soft and smooshy, making the resulting scarf with all the ribbing and cabling so squishy! I hope my dad loves it, because I won't be making another black scarf for him. He'll have to wear a colored scarf next time. :)
Have a great week everyone, and see you next week! I'll hopefully have some ultra exciting news for you all!
