It's done! It feels so great to actually finish something again.
Also, I forgot how hard it is to take acceptable pictures of a scarf unless you model it (but my face is not up to modelling today - believe me I tried). You'll just have to take my word for it; it's long enough to wrap around my neck comfortably and it feels really soft and warm.
I found the stitch pattern in a magazine and really enjoyed doing the zigzags. Easy to memorize, but interesting enough to keep going. I may be tempted to try and make a blanket with this stitch.
