I LOVE when my brain finally kicks into gear and I actually accomplish something! I have wanted to knit a cable scarf that was simply just a cable for a long time. Now, you know when you have a picture of something in your head, and you search for a pattern to go along with that picture?…. it’s usually an effort in futility – or at least it tends to be that way for me anyway 😉

I found a scarf that fit the bill perfectly on Ravelry but was unable to reach the designer to purchase the pattern. I then found another pattern that I loved, also on Ravelry, but it wasn’t reversible 😦 This is where my “AH HA!” moment comes in….. it suddenly occurred to me that…. 1) I KNOW how to cable… and…. 2) I also KNOW how to make cables reversible!

So, since I’ve been home with the flu, bronchitis and an ear infection for a week and a half, I’ve had plenty of time to knit! I went “shopping” in my stash and found yarn to match the mittens I had been making for my daughter Melyssa, and I was ready to go!

I am MORE than thrilled with the result and will be making many, many more of these – a jump start on Christmas 2010 knitting?! now THAT would be something! 🙂 That is…. AFTER I make myself one and no doubt my other two daughters will put in a request for one of these also!

The pattern info is here if you are interested.

I think, for my younger girls, I’ll make this a little narrower and longer, as they LOVE to wrap scarves around their neck in different ways… the possibilities are endless! lol
Now… I am heading back to the couch with my liquids, tissues and knitting …. it’s time to FINALLY finish up those mittens to go with the NEW scarf!
