Waves Scarf is FINALLY Finished!!

Finally!! This scarf/shawl was started back in December and was put on hold because the pattern called for 6 skeins of yarn, but after checking around on Ravelry 6 skeins wasn't nearly enough!! I ordered more yarn and ended up using 10 skeins!! Then I had to frog back 20 some odd rows because I miscrossed a cable! But it's finally finished and I couldn't be happier if I didn't have to knit 2x2 ribbing again for quite a while! *grin* I love the final results, but I don't think I'll be fooling around with 24 stitch cables anytime soon :) I think my sister is going to love it. It is one HEAVY shawl though! The shawl is blocking nicely on my dining room table as you can see :)

That really turned out nice! You probably never want to put your hands on another cable needle after that!!
