So I finished this scarf yesterday for this boy I was dating.  Logged onto Myspace (of all places) to send him a message that it was done...  & ...
he had dumped me. 
Anyways, here's the fabulous scarf I no longer know what to do with.  The colors kind of clash with my hair, so it's not something I would ever wear.  And I'd feel shitty giving it away to someone else, when the whole thing was intended for this guy.  I've been thinking about giving it to him anyways, but another part of me thinks that's pretty stupid.  I'm just glad I got the yarn on sale so I'm really only out $4 (& a boyfriend who dumps you on MySpace...)



So, what do I do with it??

EDIT: WOW, thanks a lot ladies & gents for all of your kind responses!  I am trying to PM everyone who had questions or comments, if I don't answer yours quickly enough, feel free to contact me. 
And drumroll please....
...
...
I am going to give the scarf away to someone random.  It's small enough that it will fit in my bag & I'm going to find someone who looks lonely & cold and make them (and myself) feel better.  I'll try to have my camera handy, so you can all vicariously experience the goodwill.

What a scheisskopf he is...

Keep this fabulous scarf for yourself! Rock it as you wish.

If you can't bear to see it, give it to charity. Bad thing turns into good karma!

honestly, i don't think it clashes with your hair at all. it looks great on you. i love the pattern, btw. it's beautiful.

if you just can't stand to look at it (understandable to say the least after such a cop-out breakup), i like the charity suggestion. especially around the holiday season, i'm sure there are plenty of places to donate it.

You could always give it to charity, there are many people who would appreciate it, especially such a pretty one as that. And he definitely donesn't deserve to hate the scarf if he broke up with you over myspace. It's too good for him.

It's great! Why not sell it? You could give the proceeds to Toys for Tots and get a really good feeling, while you are getting rid of a bad memory.

Love the scarf... and I don't think it clashes with your hair either. 

So keep it, give it away so it doesn't remind you of the jerk, but whatever you do DON'T GIVE IT TO HIM!  He'd probably just throw it out because it'd remind him of you, and what a shit he was...  Besides, he doesn't deserve anything nice.  It'd be better to throw it on a bonfire than to compound the injury by giving it to him.  Sheesh.
