Julie's blog is one of the first ones I heard about once I started attending my knit night. She's consistently smart and funny, and a really talented knitter. Her Watery Llama Scarf was my first clue that there was such a thing as a reversible cable. So when I found some seriously awesome blue yarn that could grow up into a perfect scarf for my father-in-law, her pattern came to mind.
It's not finished yet, but it's pretty fantastic. I modified by making it narrower, and waiting a little longer to start the cabling.
