I really had a wonderful time making this scarf for my spoilee. I learned a lot (this was the first attempt at doing cables) about myself and about the joy of sharing.
This is the scarf for my scarf exchange....it's still in process - hence the guard dog!
I'm probably the last person to know about this trick, but just in case I'm not, learning this was a revelation and made cables just one more stitch instead of a chore for me.
Draft of a mini-tutorial I'm working up. attached as pdf.
So - does it make sense? Questions? Suggested additons/changes?
