I can stop at any time
I finally finished this scarf. it turned out really really long - I should have suspected something when description mentioned that each strip should be 3 m long, but the final result was still a surprise.
The original description called for wool in six different colors (it gives a weave where no color touches the same color), which I didn't have. Some happy time was spent trying to figure out whether you can get away with fewer colors and have a good looking weave. And yes, you can, with two colors you get stripy weave, you just have to figure out how the start should look like. This post, although it's looking like something about science, was prompted by those musings.
