This scarf is worked in 2 halves and then seamed together. I only had enough yarn for 10 repeats instead of the suggested 11. I had to up my needle size to get gauge. All in all, it was a pretty fun pattern to knit. You can read more of my musings here.
By the way, how do you all like the Photoshop effects? I'm not sure if I plan to keep doing this, but it's sorta cool. Tips and tricks on how to achieve this effect are from Annie Modesitt in this post. Of course, like the Jaywalkers, I just might write a tutorial if there is a demand from my readers.
