Yes, that's right, I finished my scarf well before the Olympic torch was extinguished!  Hooray!  I just finished it 15 minutes ago, 2/21/10 at 11:41pm.  Ends are woven in, and now it just needs a rinse and some time on the blocking mats to open up the lace, and I'll wear it like a medal.
No finished photos yet because it's dark out and the scarf isn't blocked, but here's a shot from last night, on my improbable model, Frankie.  This cat can get out of a cat collar in no time flat, but she let me wrap a wool scarf around her neck for half an hour while I knit and photographed it?  Cats are so weird.
So, project specs:
Pattern: Lace Ribbon Scarf, by Veronik Avery
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Socks That Rock Lightweight
Colorway: Fall "On Tap"
Yardage: 360 (I knit this skein down to the nubs - maybe a few yards left, but I'd be surprised if it's more than a couple.

And year to date?
FOs: 6
Yards knit: 1760 (exactly 1 mile!)

Up next: a manly neckwarmer for Danny and finishing that Gooseberry Cardi!
