For my downstream One Skein Secret Pal
Project: Single Cable Scarf
Yarn: Blue Sky Organic Cotton, a little less than 2/3 skein of sage green (#83) and a little more than 1/3 skein of bone (#80)
Needles: Denise US8
Thoughts: The book shows it all in one color but this pattern was one of the rare times that I had a vision to change it from the original. I thought the cable would really pop in a contrasting color, so I took a chance. I’m glad I did because the stitch definition is better. Even with this straightforward scarf, the blocking was really necessary to let the scarf drape correctly. I used my scunci steamer and was so pleased to watch the stitches relax before my very eyes.
The softness is incredible. I know I have waxed on … and on … and on about the feel of this yarn, and all I can say is I love it even more now. I hope my OSSP loves it too!
My friend watched me work on it at Sweetie Girl’s soccer practice and she got a chance to fondle it. She just called to ask for the pattern because she has been obsessing over it. At practice, I showed her how easy it was to cable, and genius that she is, she went home and figured it right out without any additional help. In the sage words of Jillian, world domination continues!
