The Scarf for Miss E

This scarf is making me crazy.  I started it in the Xs & Os cable pattern, but I was out of yarn and the scarf was only 2 feet long.  So I frogged it and started over with fewer stitches and a different pattern - Chevron from Barbara Walker's 1st stitch dictionary.  But I didn't like it.  It was too dense and the pattern was barely visible in the Sundara yarn.  So I frogged AGAIN.  I HATE frogging.  I opted for something a little lacier.  I'm using the Hourglass Eyelet pattern from the same stitch dictionary.  I think this one will be the final version.  It's only 17 stitches wide so hopefully I can get to 4 feet at least?  I guess I had less yarn than I thought.  :( make myself feel better I cast on for a Marian cowl in a fun pink also for Miss E.  I am using a size 15 instead of a 19, but I figure, eh, Miss E is only 6 so smaller is fine.  Hopefully.
