Cable Scarf for Him

My hubby never asks me to make anything for him, but this year he had a request.  He asked for a scarf.  I wanted to find a yarn he would like and match it up with the perfect pattern.  I knew he didn't one a super chunky yarn and wool is too itchy for him.  So I chose this yarn and found this amazing pattern for free.  I am so thankful for all the amazing patterns that you can find on the web.

The completed scarf
The pattern was very easy to follow
I had learned this stitch previously from a book on baby afghans
The pattern and yarn are a good match

One day I will learn to knit cables but for now I am pleased with the outcome.
I am much more comfortable crocheting and reading crochet patterns.
I had not planned to start any new projects but hubby never makes requests.  I have a few projects to finish and a couple I planned some time ago.  Those will be next.  It may take some time with our new furry friend.    But I am trying to complete all my unfinished projects.
The last week and a half have been a blur.  
This little guy is so cute but quite the handful.  He is a terrier and has quickly earned the nickname terror.
We have to watch him every minute he is out of his crate.  But what a sweet little guy he is.  
Trying to keep him on schedule and homeschool has been quite a project. Our husky has also been sick and she has developed a cyst like last year.  I am not sure what causes this but we have to wait until she is better to address the cyst.  In the meantime she is determined to tear the cyst out herself.  She is currently wearing the "cone of shame" backwards to block her from that site.  It is quite a sight.

I didn't know you could do that with crochet! I'm not much of a crocheter myself.

Thanks for your comment on my ruffle scarf! We'd love to have you share yours on our new link part, Wayward Weekend:

Your dog is adorable! We have 2 right now. They are spoiled rotten. They think they own the house I am sure and we are there to serve them. That is definitely our dynamic I am embarrassed to admit.

Your scarf came out fantastic. I am so jealous that you can make clothes. I have always wanted to sew, but can only sew a button and stitch up a hem. My daughter is taking sewing lessons so I have high hopes she will be my clothing source in the future the way you are for your hubby.

I came by after you left such a nice note on my living room progress entry. I really appreciated the feedback. So glad I came by. We are your newest followers. Looking forward to seeing more of your projects. :)
