This scarf began as a swatch for an interesting cable pattern I found in one of my stitch dictionaries. I think the idea was to either use one repeat of the cable in a panel of stitches or to space them on a background of reverse stockinette stitch. Not knowing any better, I worked one repeat after another, which turned out to make a pretty nice reversible swatch, which turned into a pretty nice reversible scarf. Sure, it'll take a little while to make, what with all the cables and seed stitch, but it's worth all the compliments you'll get.
Knit up in this aqua colored yarn, I'm reminded of little reflecting pools, which puts me in mind of that X-Files episode (Arcadia) where Mulder and Scully go undercover as a married couple named Rob and Laura Petrie to investigate the disappearance of several residents in an upscale (over) planned community. Mulder tries to subvert the rule against swimming pools by digging a reflecting pool in their front yard. That was a good one.
