What's on my needles?

I've got a Dragon Scarf on my needles.  It's my second Orenburg lace scarf, and the pattern is a more contemporary design.  The pointed tail and the zig-zag edges inspired the naming of the scarf. 

I'm using #2 needles and a luxurious cashmere yarn.  A 28-row repeat makes up the pattern.  This repeat is to be knitted 14 times; I'm on the 8th...so I'm a little more than half way through the project.  Now that I'm getting more familiar with the pattern and reading the chart, it doesn't seem so intense. At this point, I can even watch TV and knit. I must admit, however,  there are times when I have to stop, recount stitches, and sometimes back up and fix an error because I got a little too interested in the program!
