scarf and mitts finished 52 week KAL new projects

I made Laura Chau's "just enough ruffles scarf" and matching mitts ("Wristlets from knit 1 winter 2007) and used almost all of the 200 gms of Aussie Heirloom Merino Magic I dyed using Wilton's violet frosting dye in my crock pot. I had 28 gms left and my husband did the calculations for me: I used a total of 387 yards. This was a fun scarf and the second one I've made. I used some alpaca I dyed for the first scarf for a Christmas gift and will add a pic of my husband modeling it for me to give you a new year's laugh. I started the scarf on New Year's Day thinking the KAL began then. I understand if this scarf/mitt project doesn't count if I started too soon. I finished it Jan 8th and didn't block the scarf since it had to be mailed on the 9th to the States.
