This is my first cable project! I did get bored with the pattern quite quickly though, so a word to the wise is to have at least another project going while working on this scarf.
The wool I used was quite rough to the touch and actually kind of crunchy, so I gave the finished scarf a bath in some Eucalan, and it is softer now.
