Yep, I did it!  Finished about twenty minutes before the flame was extinguished last night.

Sebastian’s Scarf by Lion Brand Yarn
Yarn: Reclaimed Lambswool
Needles: US 8

Ignore the ends that haven’t yet been woven in.  I could have woven them in during the time limit, if I’d felt like it.  Which I didn’t.  I need to block it, anyway.

This is a different pattern than the one I originally linked to a couple of weeks ago.  This one has more variety, and I’m really happy with the results.  It served exactly the purpose I was hoping for: I am now completely comfortable with both knitting and purling.  I’m even considering tackling a pair of matching fingerless mitts.  (Seamed…not quite ready for working in the round yet.)
