Well, here it is, my first cable project. It is the Irish Hiking Scarf. I was suppose to start it on worsted weight yarn but I kept making mistakes because the yarn was so small. Every project I had done up to that was on Lambs Pride Bulky, which is very nice to work with; it doesn't give me extra stitches and stuff like that. So, I frogged the worsted weight attempt, bought some more Bulky and left out one of the cable rows.
You can see the result in the attached pictures.
Now, this is also the first project I have blocked. WOW! What a difference blocking makes! :) It now looks like I know what I am doing. :) I am going to have to go back and block all my other stuff now. Blocking made it wider, longer and all the stitches look better. Chalk this up to 'why didn't momma ever tell me about this' category. :)
I am not starting on some 'Dashing' fingerless gloves for myself.
