"Scarf" is finished

I wanted to share my finished scarf (Scarf, p. 80). It still wants blocking, but that will have to wait until the Spring, when the weather is nice. I don't have a large enough space inside my house . I used Rowan Summer Tweed yarn, which is a bit thicker than the pattern called for, so I did fewer row repeats on the borders (only three) and fewer stitch repeats on the main body of the scarf, and worked the scarf on size 11 needles. The scarf still ended up really long - about 10 feet, but I think some of that length will be taken up when I block it. The close-up shows the tweedy-ness of the yarn. This is the first time that I ever knitted-on a border and it was much easier than I expected. I am definitely going to be making other items from this book .
