I did it!
I have finished the scarf, to my specifications. I don't think at this point I will add the tassels, I am not really a tassel girl.
You can see a picture here
, where I have decided to post pics of my FOs. On an exciting front, I have joined a mailing list of local SnBers, not sure whether I can a) make the meetings or b) gain the courage to face a room full of strangers, but we'll see.
My daughter is powering ahead with her scarf, I will add a photo when it is done.
