Yes, it is done. The Candleflame (please forgive the very bad Fantastic 4 reference there).

Candleflame FO

Pattern: Candleflame
Yarn: Elsebeth Levold Silky Wool (2.5 skeins)
Needles: Denise US Size 8

Start: April 2008

Finish: October 2008
Modifications: This pattern calls for lace weight. I made it in fingering weight and love it. I CO the number of stitches for the scarf and it is basically the dimensions of the shawl version. I did 10 repeats of the chart.
Thoughts: Yes, it took me awhile to finish this, but not because it was a hard knit or not interesting, but because I kept picking up OTHER things and not getting to this one. I would definitely knit this again as it goes REALLY fast! I mean really I only have a couple (maybe 5) evenings of knitting in this project.

Thank you, Olivia, for modeling for me!

Beautiful! I love the way the color enhances the pattern – and now I might have to make it, too… in that color… in fingering… hmmmmm.

(Still gleeful about my subscription prize, and the success of the fundraiser!)
