Lanark County Scarf Finished

OMG! Could it be? Knitting and something actually completed?
Lanark County, Ontario is known for it's maple syrup production and our maple bush produces a wonderful batch every two years or so - still tapping by hand and boiling down in sugar camp that is getting on for 200 hundred years old now!
The name just seemed to fit with this gorgeous "Maple Vanilla" springvale merino, one of the Pick Of The Knitter club selections from Three Irish Girls.
Slight mods for the worsted weight and the gradient colour shifts were built in between the individually dyed mini skeins. A fun, fast no-brainer knit. Best part? This stitch looks great on both sides. Gotta love it!
Hope everyone is having a great long weekend and Happy Easter to those who are celebrating...

ETA: Feeling so inspired, have cast on a 2nd "Ulmus". First WIP picture is here.
