Scarf Accomplished

My ISE4 scarf is finally done. Phew! I've never had a scarf seem so very long. I've made 6-foot-long circular tube scarfs with sock yarn on size 4 needles and they seemed faster. I'm guessing it was a combination of factors that made this project a little more time-consuming than I had expected. Kid Silk Haze can be a pain to work with, especially with clunky too-large needles. It was felt like trying to handle a porceline tea cup while wearing Orca mitts (something I do frequently - not!). Changing yarns slowed me down too, along with the transitions from thin yarn to thick yarn and then back again. I thought I was all thumbs! But overall, I'm really happy with the result. It's soft and fluffy and feminine. I really hope my scarf spoilee will like it too. Here are the specs:
Pattern: Loopy and Luscious, modified (knit in the round, with no contrast yarn rows in the center section)
Yarns: Rowan Kidsilk Haze (Shade 583), 1.5 balls
slubby handspun Lorna's Laces Wool Top (color Sherbet), 2.5 oz.
Size: 7" x 78"
