Until this point my knitting constisted of a started scarf or two then I went back to my familiar crochet.  I got more determined to finish a project when I came across a pattern for a double helix.  My boyfriend is in the pre-med program at school, so I figured he needed a double helix scarf to wear to school to make all his dorky science friends jealous.  Sadly it will be another four months until he can wear it since it's over 100 scorching degrees daily.  

Here's the whole thing...


Here's a close up...


Here's where I found the pattern...

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.

The scarf looks awesome.  I'm knitting the pattern as written right now, and I was going to try Fair Isle next -- but double knitting is WAY better.

Thanks!  The gratification from actually completing a knitting project has inspired me to actually try something more difficult than a scarf (although doubleknit quadrouples the difficulty of a scarf).  I've been looking around here for a simple shrug to try for my first garment-esque project.  I'm excited about starting and I might be getting a little bit addicted to knitting...
