I'm quite surprised how quickly I knitted the bottom edge after all. The beginning felt like an insuperable obstacle, but knitting it soon become like a mantra I was chanting to myself: "k3 yo k2tog..." and before I knew it I had done all the repeats.
OK, that was a lie. I didn't do all the 144 repeats. I ran out of yarn by the 142nd repeat and as I'm trying to use my stashed yarns and not buy anything new, I made the conscious decision to leave the last two repeats out. I didn't want to go and buy a whole skein just for the few metres of yarn I needed to finish the repeats. I'm convinced this will not affect how the scarf will turn out.
Luna seems to love the scarf. I left the lace edging on the sofa for just a couple of minutes to go and get the next colours and she had already decided to take possession of it. I had to grab some chicken from the fridge to make a trade. She seemed happy about the transaction.
P.S. The photos were taken with my (old) iPhone so the quality is not the best but it will have to do for today.
