Approximately 13,000 Stitches of Love

In January, as a belated Christmas/birthday present for my mother, I finished my first knitting project. It's a scarf made from slightly less than 3 skeins of Manos del Uruguay wool (Granite, #108), worked on Size 9 bamboo needles in a basket stitch with a cross motif in reverse-stockinette on the middle section. The pattern grid size is 6x6 stitches, and each section is 7x17 squares (and the middle section is 7x19). Prime numbers... you know, for luck.
