The Pippi Scarf is now ready. It turned out really pretty! I used same yarns for this scarf as for the second pair of my Horizon mittens so they will pair up nicely when the weather starts to get colder.
I seem to have calculated the yarn requirements quite well: I only have half a skein left of the baby merino, everything else is used up. I ran out of the alpaca yarn a bit too early having to skip the last two repeats of the edging, but it really doesn't matter now that the scarf's all done. I also used all my Novita Wool except for the last few meters. It will go to my little box of scrap yarns, to be used for a provisional cast on or something similar.
The scarf is quite easy to knit but can get a bit monotonous because of the length of it. Making 144 repeats for the bottom edge or repeating the lace pattern 10 times in length and 4 times in height becomes quite boring after a while. The pattern was written well and easy to follow.
0.6 skeins of Drops Alpaca (none left)
1.7 skeins of Novita Wool (just a few meters left)
