Wow. Wow. Two years ago, I got very excited about knitting this. I ordered the kit from a wonderful Danish seller and hoped that somehow I would magically acquire the ability to knit it (and the ability to decipher the instructions). I was in over my head but I knew what to do; I gave the kit to my mother who is an experienced knitter. She generously offered to take it home, master the instructions, and then teach me how to knit the scarf. It turns out that knitting this scarf is an enjoyable task, and not as difficult as it might appear. So periodically, my mother would selflessly offer to give the scarf back for me to start knitting, and I would say, if you are enjoying it, keep it. Knowing all the while that this would be the end result. A gorgeous scarf to wear all winter, and a constant reminder of my mother's love and skill.
