The scarf was approximately 39” long, unblocked, and I'd used 352 beads to that point, or just over half. [Which means that I can knit another scarf using some sort of denim-colored yarn to further coordinate my coppery-gold-stitched denim shirt-jacket with my brown paisley silk skirt. I think the leftover slate blue Gloss from Brother Sushi's tie might be the perfect yarn for the job. Maybe I should just slip the leftover beads off this yarn and directly onto the other?]
And here's where we were at 12:32pm, after three hours of church. A total of 384 beads; approximately 6” in width and 44” in length before blocking.
It took me less time to transfer the beads from from one yarn to the other than it did to remember where I had stowed the needle threaders for safekeeping. And what was my mental soundtrack while searching? Oh, Where is My Hairbrush? from Veggie Tales.
Was that close, or what? That, my friends, is one measly inch of yarn gasping for breath at the end of the binding-off. Yes, it needs its ends woven in. And yes, it needs a good blocking. But to all intents and purposes, this scarf is done.
And no, I'm not starting the other one today.

She finished with “You are actually supposed to tag five people. So all five of you who read my blog, consider yourselves tagged.” Silly girl, there have to be way more than five of us who read her. I think I found her from a post or comment on Mason-Dixon Knitting.
Here are my three events:
