My Year Long Project

*Sigh* I started this scarf a year ago for my big sister after making another (different) scarf for my lil' sister.  It's not difficult and not really time-consuming unless you're already lacking in time.  I just picked up a few other hobbies in the new year and left this at the wayside.  Now I'm on my way to finishing it (yah!).  I'm not too crazy about the colour; I started it when I was in a tan/brown phase and now I'm into BRIGHT BRIGHT LOUD colours.  Still - I think my sis will like it. 
Here's the work in progress -

A few things about this project :-
- I love my Knit Pro needles for this project.  My needle stash is made up of mainly Addis, but on the advise of some sharing member of Ravelry, I decided on the wooden Knit Pro circulars - it's not as slippery.
- Be faithful to filling out your chart as you go along.  The pattern is really easy to follow and remember; but a tired and distracted mama and I would forget how many rows I had done since I last marked off my chart.
- Use lifelines!!!!!!!!!
- I'm sure I'll have something to say about blocking when I finish knitting and get around to doing it.  I still haven't got the hang of blocking so this will be an experience.

Well, I'm off for a cuddle and a chat in bed with my little one - one of my favourite parts of the day.  Good night all.
