Ahead of schedule!

I finally finished my Noro striped scarf! Ahead of schedule! I set a goal to be done by the end of the weekend, and I finished at 6pm tonight.
I love it.
I used Silk Garden colors 282 and 279:
And I stole this picture idea from the Yarn Harlot because it looked cool:
Very much worth the seemingly long time it took to knit. Special thanks to Laura and Annie who convinced me to keep going to the end of the skeins when I wanted to stop today. I got a good 12 more inches worked up after I decided to keep going! It really is the perfect project for in front of the tv or to work on at the store since it doesn't take much concentration. And the results are great, if I do say so myself.
Happy Valentines Day! Paul and I just had breakfast for dinner and chocolate dipped strawberries for desert. Yum!
On to my Rambling Rows baby afghan made of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.... talk about yum!

The scarf is beautiful. Can't wait to see the colors you chose for the afghan. I found the pattern - looks interesting.

I just LOVE my Noro scarf - have it slung around my neck as I write this diddy!!! The color pattern's a bit different but just as beautiful. People I don't know come up to me and say "..great Noro!!!". Thanks for knitting it for me, Liz.
