Green drop stitch scarf

Since it's so hot that there's nothing to do but stay hunkered down inside with the blinds drawn, one may as well get some knitting projects/gifts finished!

Drop Stitch Scarf
 

Project Details
Pattern: Drop Stitch Scarf from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2012 (I made another version last year)
Yarn: Two hanks of Shibui Cima (70% superbaby alpaca, 30% fine merino wool) in lime, purchased from Woolarium.
Needles: 3.25mm

Apart from a baby cardigan that is also languishing in the 'to be finished' pile, that's it for knitted gifts from me this year. I've got too much pattern drafting and test knitting to do, so I shall have to be strong and stop offering to knit things for other people. That's easier said than done for me, as I have a tendency to always offer, especially if somebody is having a bub. But I must be strong, like a focussed knitting Jedi, whose mission is to provide awesome patterns to the world!!!

Good grief, I think I've been stuck inside too long. Knitting Jedi indeed. It's the heat... it's melting my brain!
