I first started knitting this on Feb 29th. And then ripped it out three times for various reasons (love the yarn but it's not easy to fix mistakes in! Particularly not when you drop the whole damn project off of the needles!)
However the fourth time was the charm and I started it on Wednesday night and finished it this evening.
I used slightly less than 2 balls (25g each) of Sirdar Firefly and 12 mm needles. I think the colour is called Aquamarine, I bought the yarn in September and truthfully can't remember. Actually I think the aquamarine might be the one with greener tints to it, kinda turquoise. Whatever. It took way less yarn that I thought it would - going by how much was in each ball weight wise I bought four balls (and have two and a bit left) but it never occurred to me to look at how much yardage there was per ball - and this is a very light yarn.
It's not as neat as I would like but I love it and am very glad I persevered.
I think I will probably make another scarf with the remainder as a gift for a friend. But I think Zeeby's Bag is probably going to be my next project. For knitters, if you are a ravelry member look it up on there. It's from the Stitch n Bitch book by Debbie Stoller.
