Advent Calendar Scarf - Finished

I'm finishing off 2013 with, not 1, not 2, but 3 finished projects!  First up, the Advent Scarf from the knitalong on Ravelry.  Beginning on December 1st we were given a small part of the overall pattern, plus we were to knit the spacer section between each day's design.  I finished a few days after the last clue was published on December 24th, but given all there is to do around Christmas, I'm satisfied with my progress.
