Irish Hiking Scarf

This is part of my long term project to make The Ideal Sweater. Since at this point my fantasy involves cables, I figured it would be a good idea to see how cables work. After looking around for free cabled scarf patterns, I picked this Irish Hiking Scarf from Hello Yarn. I don't plan to continue knitting in this fantastically garish pink color, but Mo graciously let me use the yarn to practice. I looked in at the knitalong, and I've decided I want a yarn that will showcase the cables. I'm going to look for a light grey or grey-blue wool, and I'll consider using tweed.
