But I know I'll get a lot of use out of this scarf next winter. I absolutely love it, and I plan to knit another one soon in a seafoam or celery or other light green yarn for my mom (she has the prettiest green eyes). I would definitely recommend knitting this pattern in Rowan Cashsoft. After a not very intensive blocking, the scarf tries to curl only a little bit. And the yarn is so soft, I didn't mind wearing it in 80 degree weather for picture-taking.
And also, Forbes Forest is just fun to knit. After a few repeats, the pattern is easy to remember, but like most cabled patterns, still interesting. And on this project, I finally learned to cable without a cable needle. Like I needed a reason to like cables more--no wonder I want to knit this pattern again already.
Now I finally have a pink scarf, and can scratch another New Year's Resolution off the list.
