Kirk: the last stretch

Oh, I am so close to finishing my brother's Kirk!
I tried it on, and had a moment of panic. I've been blocking pieces as I finish them, but I didn't want to stretch them out too much. As a result, the ribbing is still very tight. In fact, it's so tight that you can't really see the cables!
Not stretched:

Ah, much better! Is it me, or do those cables look like little chromosomes?

I have my next project all figured out. Prof M owns this scarf:
Do you see where it says "100% acrylic"? *gasp* (At least he had the good sense to buy it on sale. Although, wait a minute, $15 for an acrylic scarf?!). I must remedy this situation right away! I have some chocolate-colored alpaca from Rhinebeck...
