It was way fun to do!  Took bloody forever, but I can already think of a million variations of it!  Hooray!

Hope you dig it!

I love how it drapes around you neck, very nice....... Now, the only thing I boil in beer is bratwurst, then I grill them, and serve them with sauerkraut on a rye bun.  I don't think your scarf would taste very good Roll Eyes

Wow- that looks beautiful! Lovely colour. I love it. I also have to say I love your ears (is in the stretched-ness), sorry, what size are they at?

Thanks

awesome!

i just finished one too- but was waiting to make some wrist warmers to match before posting a pic. your colour is lovely though- and i agree it took awhile to do, but the effect is well worth the effort.

eunnyjang- I used Artfiber's "Gypsy", that I searched for on their site and can't seem to find, so I wonder if it's been discontinured?  I got a bag of it off ebay a while ago for way cheap (score!) and am slowly using it up.  It's tesselated silk, very delicious.  I recommend it.

CatyX- My ears are at 00g.  I started stretching them about 4 years ago and they've been at this size for about 2 of those years.  I keep telling myself not to go any bigger, but it's addictive!  I've managed to stave off this long....Smiley

Thank you for all the nice comments!

Definitely wear it! It's simply too beautiful for boiling, and I think it'd taste terrible.  Wink

It's not very difficult- it's all garter stitch, and it's a good way to learn about short rows.  The trickiest part is heeping count of what row you are on, but after a while, you can sort of "see" how many you've done and it's not bad.  It takes a very long time, for a scarf, though, but it's a great project to stick in your bag, it gets awesome looks from strangers.  Smiley  I can't recommend this book enough!  I want to make EVERYTHING.
