Boteh Scarf

This was finished today as part of my effort in the Ravelympics 2008 for team Dog, chicken & aardvark.
The event is WIP (work in progress - for non-knitters) Wrestling.
Started this in July 2008 finished 9th August 2008 @ 6.30pm GMT.
Boteh Scarf - pattern by Kathy Merrick available as a download from Interweave. Crocheted on a 4mm hook using two skeins of Koigu. I reduced the repeats by 2 because I was getting low on yarn and needed to make sure I had enough for the edging and because I didn't want it over long. I lightly steam blocked it - it needed it. I liked the pattern enough that I'd make it again 'tis pretty.

I have cast on for the Sockput event and 30% into a pair of socks for M, I have one other item listed for WIP Wrestling - my February Lady Sweater - that may be a tad optimistic of me, but hey you don't know till you try.
