I have finally finished the scarf I made for Eli's brother. It took me about 4 months to complete. Granted, I did not work exclusively on it, it was my "hard" project and I knit a ton on "easy" projects during that time. I was also sick for most of January, which meant it got neglected. But anyway, I think I can say, with confidence that this scarf was the most demanding thing I have EVER knit. But boy does it look good!
