Saroyan - In Progress

My quest to finish projects that have been languishing for a while continues.  Approaching the finish line is the Saroyan Shawl (also available on Ravelry as a free download).  The picture shows my unblocked scarf, folded in half.  I'm using Wolle's Yarn Creations Color Changing Cotton. 

The scarf starts with the lightest aqua, gradually changing to a dark blue.  The pattern is well written and you have latitude to use different yarns, weights....and, to make the scarf as wide, narrow or as long as you like.  There are three sections:  an increase section, straight section and finally a decrease section.  I've been working on 12 repeats of each and I'm now working the decreases.  I'm hoping that I don't run out of yarn before I reach the end.  Should that happen, I'll rip back to the straight section and remove one or two repeats.  Right now, I'm optimistic, but I've got my fingers crossed.  I have 9 more repeats left to go.  The leaf border is on only one side of the shawl/scarf.

I should have an F.O. (finished object) to report in a couple of days!

So pretty! It's a great pattern.

Knit faster so you don't run out of yarn and have to rip.
