Learning to Cable


I'm just learning how to knit. For the past three Saturdays I've taken a class in making cables. Who knew it would be so simple? Our teacher was great! This is the scarf I made, out of a lovely merino/silk blend. So soft. I still need to block the scarf, then it will be ready for a Christmas gift. I just love the colour.
