Alpaca scarf

Ok - so here's my alpaca scarf. Pic on right demostrating how long it suddenly got... I usually get really impatient, but it's a really meshy stitch with needles double the size recommended on the yarn.

Before I knew it the scarf was trailing the floor....

I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca, and it only took 2 and half balls to get this length. It was a Sirdar pattern for Bigga, but I can't bear 100% pure wool - too itchy!

<-- here's a close-up of the pattern - if you can see it?

Spot my kitty on the window ledge - aahhh :)

That scarf is gorgeous! I've been fondling that yarn in John Lewis and I think this may make some good Christmas presents.
