Irish Hiking Scarf

I've decided that the Manos del Uruguay in olive - 55 needs to become the Irish Hiking Scarf. Now, I know that some of you are out there thinking, "what a wimp!" "that's so easy" "gee, can't you come up with something harder?". But I want you to know that I am spatially challenged. I have extraordinary difficulty just creating the stitches, never mind trying to turn those stitches remotely into anything resembling a garment! So the Irish Hiking Scarf will a) provide a lot of practice for the heretofore-untried cable stitch, b) hopefully look presentable at the finish, and c) really emphasize the beauty of the yarn. And that's what it's really all about it, isn't it?
