Finished Object!

Pattern: Irish Hiking Scarf from Hello Yarn
Yarn: Bernat Denim Style, color Chino
Needles: 5.0 mm (US 8) circulars

I finished the Irish Hiking Scarf for Jimmy over the weekend. And he's already worn it on a couple of dog walks. This was a very fun knit and I learned to cable...who knew it was so easy?

I was really pleased with how this yarn knit's very soft, but I thought the stitch definition was very good. Better than I expected. My only complaint is I would've liked the scarf to be about another 2 or 3 inches longer, but I can live with it.

I'm including a picture of the wrong side of the scarf, mostly because I've never seen a picture of the wrong side of this scarf and I'm usually curious as to what the backside of stuff looks like.
