scarf for Da

Well, the last of my Christmas knitting is complete. (Yeah, yeah, you can all hate me now.)

Pattern: Intertwined Cables Scarf from the 2006 "Knitting Pattern A Day" calendar, March 14-15
Yarn: Cascade 220, a heathery team with hints of navy and cool purple.
Gauge: 19 sts/4 in, I believe
Needles: Addi Turbo, size 8
Techniques: cabling w/o a cable needle
Male Model: Thom (my fabulous husband)

This is for Thom's dad. Two years ago, pre-blog, he got a hat for Christmas. A year ago, he got mittens. He's hinted that he's aiting for a scarf this year, so far be it from me to disappoint!

This was a fun knit -- the cables were pretty intuitive, yet varied the knitting enough to keep me interested. I've blocked it, and it's ready to be wrapped!

Now, on to finishing a poncho for Grandma's birthday (back in April!) and then I can go snuggle up with the object of my affection. And my husband, if he wants to join us!
