That is gorgeous! You are doing a great job. My scarf has a lot of mistakes as well but you just have to accept them as the added character and let it go

Mine has been put on hold until I can finish the two scarves for my mom and sister. :D

:D I had the same thing happen to me! I knit some scarves in order to just teach myself the basics of knitting. I did one for myself and one for my father - nice but not interesting at all. Mom, who is a wonderful crafter on the other hand is getting this Irish Hiking Scarf thanks to your knit along here. I decided I was ready for a cable...this one is easy. So on Christmas dad opened his scarf and loved it (he did not know it only took a couple hours) and then I showed mom hers on the needles. She was so excited...she thought it was SO difficult and it was wonderful! Good thing we are in Chicago...we are going to be cold for several more months...so as long as I really get on it - she can have it soon. Glad to see someone else missed their goal date for the Irish Hiking Scarf too!

Don't you just love patterns that are so easy yet look so hard?!

The scarves look great! Here is a pick of mine so far -- I took a break from it and did a hat, but I'll be getting back to it now the hat is done :D

Holly the scarf does look great.

Kome what yarn did you use on yours - it looks really beautiful. Did you give it to your mom yet? I gave my mother hers on New Years Eve. She was so excited she sat around my house wearing it. She was very cute. Now dad wants one - ugh. Hee hee hee. I took some pictures of it before I gave it to mom, maybe I can post it here if I figure out how.

Nope! I haven't finished it. I've been working on a sweater. It's already hot outside! So I am in no hurry. 81 degrees F in Orlando today! It's so nice out. So yeah.. I'll give it to her next "winter", or whenever I have time to finish it. I have school starting, and noro yarn that just arrived! So yeah.. so yeah... so yeah! :rollseyes:

And I have NO IDEA what yarn I am using. I picked it up at a thrift store in a bag with a bunch of other yarns for $3. It's wonderful to knit with though! And I agree, it looks lovely!
