So I saw the Rapunzel scarf swap and didn't really feel that the yarn I have in stock was appropriate to swap so I made my own damn scarves.  They are made of mostly wool but do have some acrylic strands thrown in there.  Next time I want to add more yarn and not braid the strands so tightly.  They one on the left is approx. 4 1/2 yards and the one on the right is approx. 3 1/4 yards.  I think I like the one on the left the best.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

Those are really beautiful.  How many strands of yarn did you use in each scarf?  In the swap we do 30 (though people did add more of their own in most cases).

I have thought about making a rapunzel scarf with "normal" yarn.  When I made my granny daughters for the granny daughter swap, the tails were annoying me, so I braided them and that is when I realized the potential there (and I think I just may do it this weekend). 

For the current swap I should let my partners know regular worsted weight is ok too.

I used about 40 strands. 
I only had 2 strands of bulky weight yarn in the scarf on the right and none in the one on the left.  I didn't know how they were going to turn out with the worsted weight but I like them a lot.  So much that I made 2 in the same day.
