Irish Hiking Scarf


i'm sooooo close to being done with this scarf i couldn't wait to post a pic.... i'll post one when it's totally done as well though :)
this pattern is soooo easy.... it was really tough at first but once i got used to it and memorized it it was simple.... heheh you can actually see my progress along the scarf... there are so many mistakes in the beginning (i was just learning how to do cables when i started... i started it at the same time as i made my cabled mittens) but the mistakes phase out like halfway through... i'm gonna have to wear it a certain way to hide my blunders heh.....
