Not your typical hellcat biker chic and
Li'l Deb would say "that's not a bad thing!"

I See More Red

Daughter-who-doesn't-knit likes cables.   I sent her the link to this pattern and her reply was "I love it."   

Debbie Bliss Cabled Scarf
Debbie Bliss Magazine Fall/Winter 2012 
9.75 x 94.5" and 1 lb. 6 oz. 


Modelled by BGITWWW ...Best Granddaughter In The Whole Wide/wild World..  

"Ah Nan, it's really warm but it's getting heavy.  
Nan, Nan's getting really heavy.  

4 skeins into the pattern.  9 to go.

I was half way through my 13th skein when I measured out 94.5" without stretching the fabric.  The scarf was soaked, rinsed, and squeezed.  My hands kept coming up with short red fuzz! The fabric stretched to an unmanageable length so I rolled it up into a high thread count cotton sheet. The sheet had the length I needed and it sucked up water quickly.  

The next day I unrolled it from the sheet, placed it on top of a thick lining on the floor. Several hours later I was relieved to see some bounce back to the fabric but the cables looked flat. I pinned to pattern measurements. It finally dried and the cables plumped up a little. 

I put it out in the cold to soak up fresh air scent.  I was in the process of removing U pins (160) and tweaking the scarf straight when Q, King of the Spice Ferns came over to play.  

This pattern is so pretty and easy to remember.

...Happy Trails...
