I liked this pattern and Christopher needed a new hat since I accidentally felted the old one. I finished it in just over a week - which is a bit of a record for me, but then again, it is only a hat. It was a fun knit though. The yarn is Cascade 220 tweed and it took about 3/4 of a skein, size 6 needles.

I know, it takes me forever to finish something, but this one was only a month. (I tracked my progress on Ravelry.) This scarf is for my brother, Jon. I debated and debated on how long to make it. The pattern called for 71", Jon thought that was too long, but it's actually not as long as you'd think. I didn't actually measure the finished project, but I stopped the pattern when it measured 73".
I really like the pattern, and several people commented on it as well. So I may end up making more scarves like this at some point.
