Look what's cookin' on the southside

Greetings from the southside! Southside!

My thanks to Hannah for the inspiration to post works in progress, as I don't know that I still possess anything that I've finished.

I'm knitting this scarf for a friend's birthday in mid-October, so I guess I better get knitting!

The pattern is from Celebrity Scarves 2, which I received for my birthday last year when I first embarked on my knitting adventures. The associated celebrity is Katherine Heigl (fitting that I post this the night of the Grey's season premiere). The actual pattern calls for a fuzzy border, which I've decided to exclude. In its place, Hannah has suggested an icord edge in a different color, which seems like a good idea to me. For now, I'm focusing on the main cable pattern (my first cable!). The yarn is Manos cotton that I bought for less than $3 a skein at the Loopy Yarns end of summer sale.

Oooh, cable knit + pink = awesome.

I also am quite of fan of the cabling.

Southside represent! What are you thinking for the icord edge color?

Oh, HEB, how nice of you to think that I've thought about the icord edge color! If you have any suggestions, fire away...
