Six months later, a finished Ene

It's been a long road. After casting on 375 stitches, messing up after the first couple of rows twice, casting on two more times, and running out of yarn, she is finally done! This is the crowning achievement of my knitting thus far, requiring far more concentration and perserverence than any other project.

Pattern: Ene's Scarf by Nancy Bush in Scarf Style
Started: 15Sep2006
Finished: 07Mar07 (off the needles), 11Mar07 (ends woven in)
Yarn: Blackberry Ridge Laceweight, 2.5 skeins, cream
Needles: Knitpicks Options, sz 6

Just gorgeous. You'll have to get all dressed up this spring and wear it somewhere fancy. Just because.

Your Ene is absolutely gorgeous! The Blackberry Ridge really does it justice. Ene is on my list; it's a lovely pattern, and you did a beautiful job. Congratulations!

Oh it looks gorgeous! It's huge, too! Congratulations on finishing that - I'm sure you're feeling very proud right now. I'm contemplating some Malabrigo laceweight to make one.
