IHS progress

As requested by Dipsy Doodle! A progress photo of the Irish Hiking Scarf:



I've done a few more repeats since I took the photo. Last night I got the swift and the yarn winder out and wound the second skein of the cashmere-silk into a centre-pull ball. It's the first time I've done this and it's certainly a LOT faster than trying to wind yarn by hand! It also makes a great centre-pull ball that sits flat, no more yarn escaping under the sofa :-) Wish I'd bought a winder a long time ago!

Mmmmm, lovely :) Oh, I don't have a swift but you're making me want one. My winder won't get used without it!

It's really going to be lovely!

I don't know what a swift is, but I'd like a winder.

Hope it's as sunny there as it is here!

It looks like you're not too far off finishing. It's a gorgeous colour.

Wow, I can't believe how gorgeous this scarf already is! What an amazing color, and the cabling looks fabulous! I wish my cabling would ever turn out so neat and even - but I'm afraid I have a long way to go still...
