The scarf that never ends is now done! Fia Lotta Jansson's challenge was just what I needed to push me to finish it. That and the wise advice of a co-worker/knitting guru who helped me to get back on track with the pattern.
It turns out that my biggest problem was just figuring out which side I was working from. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't remember where I left off when I set the scarf down. My friend tink'd it back and wisely placed a stitch-marker so I wouldn't forget. Duh!

From there it was just tedious knitting, but a super easy pattern and repeat. I knit until I ran out of yarn, then happily binded off the edge and told my husband that he better wear it constantly; including in his sleep! I don't know if he'll follow my orders that much but I'm glad it's done, and I think it turned out nicely.
