Although I have made very little head way on my 1944 skirt (have pattern pieces cut out), I have almost completed my cable scarf. I will probably add another 10-12 inches so that it is nice and long. I want to be able to wrap it around. I will definitely try another cable pattern. It isn't so bad once you get going, but you have to keep track. No more mindless knitting! I wrapped it around my dummy to get an idea for length and man does it look hideous with that dress. Speaking of which, I wore it to church today with a distressed jean jacket and got many compliments. Didn't think to get any pictures. My camera is so bad right now-(sniff,sniff,cry,cry).
I did sign up on Ravelry and it looks so knit. It is like knitters and crocheters having their own little world-woohoo!
