HP Scarf Finished At Last
I've been working on this off and on since december and I am so glad to be done with it. As you can see, I did finish all of the repetitions, even though I wanted to cut it short so many times. This is the most massive scarf I've ever seen, but I'm sure it will keep me nice and warm on those cold days. Too bad it's 90 degrees outside. I'll have to put it away until winter.

Wow! You get credit for determination! It looks wonderful and I'm sure everyone will be jealous come winter.

Wow, way to go! Those scarves are knit in the round, yes? That's a lot of knitting!

It looks great, and although I don't want to encourage the early arrival of winter, I'd love to see a picture of you all wrapped up in it when the time comes!
