VICTORY IS MINE!!!
I finished my scarf at about 10pm last night -- I've decided to call it 'Anja', since I cast off the last stitch just about the same time Anja Paerson got her gold in slalom. I'm weaving in ends this evening and I'll post a pre-blocked picture later on.
Even though I cheated and started early I'm right chuffed with myself, I can assure you. I feel positively victorious.
