FO Friday: Yipes Stripes

Today I have a very long-awaited FO to share: a stripey lace weight infinity scarf that had been on the needles since September of last year!

At times, it seemed that it would never end - after all, I was using lace weight yarn and needed to knit quite a bit of length before it could be called done....although I may have gone overboard:

I used up nearly every yard of the light grey yarn, and it was a fantastic travel project since the pattern was so easy to memorize. Our road trip to Kansas City last month was the perfect opportunity to finish it once and for all! I'm so glad I did, because it's going to be awesome to wear this fall - Tthe angora is so soft and lightweight, but surprisingly warm....and look at how many times I can loop it around my neck (pardon the crazy eyes...invariably that happens during the photo shoot!)

Pattern: Arnhem Loop, available for free on Ravelry
Yarn: Bijou Basin Ranch Seraphim - I used 2 balls of Smoke and 1 ball of Eggplant.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a crafty weekend!
