I really try not to make scarves anymore. If I do embark on one, then I try to learn a new stitch rather than be tortured by rows upon rows of monotony. I was going to send this off for a collection for soldiers but I think that I missed the collection date... (super flake - that is me). Anywho, I am in love with this cabled fabric. I pulled it from the handy perpetual calendar - 365 stitches (or something of the like).
