Over the last year and a month, I have been working, off and on, on an infinity scarf. It was a fingering weight yarn, and I was using size 2 needles. That means that I was using a very fine yarn, and each stitch was very small. So, the finished product was going to need a lot of stitches.
I cast on 324 stitches. I figured I'd work until the yarn ran out.
I've talked about the scarf as I've progressed. Here are the posts if you'd like to see it as it grew:

How wide should a scarf be? I decided I'd aim for 8 inches.
I measured my scarf. It was 7 inches across.
I was... gulp... almost done!
Keep in mind, I've been working on this puppy since June. 2018. (Ravelry is great for keeping track of these things.) I was beginning to think I'd never finish the thing.
8 inches is long enough. I was calling it. One more inch to do...
I pretty much dropped all my other projects and focused on this one. And on Friday, I finished.
Just to get an idea, I tried it on to show you how big it is (even though it's not for me)...
And I had a bit of yarn left over. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. I'll worry about that later.
Now that that's finished, I can concentrate on the other scarf.
I started this one in November. So, totally doable by December, right?
