FO Friday: MacAskill Scarf

So, the MacAskill Scarf was the victim of Yarn Chicken.  I got to the cast-off. . . and ran out of yarn with only a few stitches remaining in the bind off.  It took until January to get the spare yarn from my last skein (of which I only needed a few yards), and then until today to block the darn thing!
a bulky-weight scarf with a Celtic knot style cable.  Scarf is folded up with the ends tucked underneath.

The pattern does offer the option for fringe at the ends, which I was hoping for, but I just didn't have quite enough yarn left over for the fringe without going further into my last skein. 

Yarn is *Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky, in Fjord Heather, which Knit Picks was kind enough to give me as yarn support for this pattern! It's great workhorse bulky yarn, and I'm thrilled with how it took the blocking. I haven't yet tested the scarf outside in Winter, but I'll wear it tonight and see how it does!

I worked this on my 7 mm wooden needles from Turn of the Century, and as always, I love these needles! They're wonderful, lightweight, and super comfortable to knit with!

And the pattern is my very own MacAskill Scarf  -- you can find the pattern on the Knit Picks website, either as a single  *digital download, or, as part of the *Windward Collection Book!

Well, that's this FO Friday done, and I'm glad to have this scarf blocked and fully done!  I'll put it to good use over the next week (weather forecast says we're hovering around freezing for the rest of this week and into the next), and see how well it holds up!

What have you folks finished up this week?  Please, post in the comments and share your works!
