First of all, thank you for all your comments on my previous post! For some reason I'm not able to reply to the comments, every time I try the whole site gets stuck. Which sucks. But I really appreciate them all. It was nice to hear that you guys feel the same way about knitting and I really love the mutual support in the online knitting community, the love spread between people is just amazing!
This scarf has been on my needles for quite a while, and no wonder, after a quick calculation I came to the conclusion that I have knitted 85.624 stitches and gone through 1 kilometre and 272 meters of yarn to get this thing off my needles. Definitely worth it if you ask me. This will be something I will love and cherish for years to come.
The pattern is from Temple of Knit website and is freely available. You can also find it via Ravelry.
I used baby alpaca silk blend yarn for this scarf, which is immensely soft and gives the fabric a nice shine. I continued knitting until the scarf was about 200 cm long as the designer suggested, instead of 160 cm that the pattern originally instructed. I also casted on 2 more stitches than was supposed to, 154 instead of 152. This was just a mistake I made, and didn't feel like starting over again since it really didn't matter.
The scarf is so lovely that Luna is using it as a pillow at this very moment as she sleeps next to me while I'm writing.
