Something for me?

Since I’m waiting on the yarn I ordered for my upcoming baby projects, I decided to de-stash a little and make something for myself using my super soft, super bulky Rowan Big Wool in Smoky.  It’s a really pretty gray, almost 2 shades in the the same family.

I decided to use a pattern by Mary-Heather Cogar (of Ravelry, naturally), called Riverwalk.  It’s a pretty, but simple cable pattern and should work nicely with my super bulky yarn.

The pattern itself is actually the first individual pattern I’ve ever purchased (on Ravelry or otherwise).  Although I’ve bought books before, I’ve never actually bought a single pattern on its own.  Much to my husband’s chagrin, this could become a habit.

This scarf I’m keeping for myself.  I haven’t made myself anything in quite some time and since I’m the only person in my family that seems to be able to appreciate real wool when it’s at its soft, fluffy best anyway this one gets to be mine.
