I've been on a real scarf knitting kick lately.  I think this is my favourite one so far.  I combined 4 yarns with very different textures, but I liked the colour combination.  The first picture shows the true colour of the scarf.  The close-up was done on a scanner and makes the yarns look lighter.

Thanks for the nice comments.  It didn't take very long to knit because I used size 10 mm. (US size 15) needles.  The thing that took the longest was deciding how to finish the ends.  I finally decided on pom poms.
It's funny that both of you said it looks expensive because I got the yarns at the Spinrite factory outlet in the single balls (end of dyelots) bin.  I paid about $3 for all of the yarn used in this scarf.
