I made one of these a couple years ago (using the atypically.knit PoA pattern--http://knit.atypically.net/scarves/azkaban/pattern.shtml
) and of course it came out crazy long and heavy--pictures here: http://elaineofshalott.livejournal.com/224372.html#cutid2
; the stripes are really a silver-gray, even though they look white from the flash--partly because I think I made it even longer than the pattern says (oops) and partly because the pattern is just written that way. Anyway I never wear it, it's so big and looks awkward on me, so...what d'you think should I do with it? Should I rip the ENTIRE THING out and re-knit it to be, say, 1/2 the width but just as long? If I do that, does anyone want the extra yarn that will result? Or is anyone of the Ravenclaw persuasion really enamored of giant neck- and face-eating scarves, and wants the whole thing as is? PM me or post a message here if you do or have other suggestions...
EDIT: Pictures fixed.
