The beauty of knitting a store sample

I'm teaching a cabling class later this month featuring Jared Flood's handsome reversible scarf, Cinder. We'll go over cabling with a needle and without, reading cable patterns and charts all the while stitching away happily on this little gem.

I'm knitting this as a store sample, which means, I. Get. To. Knit. It. For. Free! Yes, it goes back to live at Wild Yarns, hopefully doing its job selling piles of Thirteen Mile yarn.

The Thirteen Mile chunky is perfect for this patter and lends Jared's design a tougher, more rustic look.

For my part, even though our time together will be brief, I'm happy to be in the company of this gorgeous yarn for as long as my two skeins last.
