Wishing for the Cold?

This scarf is enough to make me wish is was January.  It is the softest thing I have ever felt.  (With the possible exceptions of a newborn baby's hair and my bunny, Smudge.) 
I finished and blocked it last night.  It still smells like Eucalan.  Mmmmm.

Stats:
Pattern:  Leaf Lace Scarf  by Shirley Paden, from Vogue Knitting Summer "05
Yarn:  Karabella Boise, 50% Cashmere / 50% Merino, 2 balls
Needles:  Addi Turbo US size 7

Modifications:  I used a seed stitch edging to help control rolling.  I slipped the last stitch of each row, for a clean edge.  The pattern has you knit this scarf in two sections and graft them at the center back, I just knit this one straight through.

Yipee, I get to tick another one off my UFO August List!
