I haven't had many FOs lately.  Maybe that's because I work on too many things at once...
Here's pink scarf scarf I finished in March or so.  The pattern is from One Skein and I used 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden.  It's not the longest scarf in the world (56"), but it's bright pink and it never gets very cold here anyways, so I'm happy.

See that part on the left side where the light pink suddenly turns into bright pink?  Yeah.. I wasn't too happy that the yarn was broken, tied back together, and suddenly changed into a different color.  Oh well

Hopefully I'll have a more substantial FO to post this month.    I'm "this close" to finishing a sweater.   Grin

That is soooo good-looking!

Kudos to you for cabling all that distance - nearly 5 feet.
That is well long enough for a scarf!

That's quite lovely!  Did it take two skeins instead of one just because of the yarn you used, or was the pattern for a shorter scarf?

both, actually.  Silk Garden is only 109 yards per skein and the Double Cable Scarf from One Skein is supposed to end up being 38" long.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
