So... my bf dumped me last month and we just got round to returning eachothers things.

Included in the bag of things returned to me is the scarf I spent a month and a half making him as a surprise gift. I told him that "if he wasn't wearing it" I wanted it back and a friend of his at his uni told me he'd never seen it so I'm rather hurt. It's blue and green chenille and a beautiful warm scarf... but I dunno if I can deal with wearing it.

Is there anything else I could do with it? I'd feel weird re-gifting it knowing I made it for the ex.

I <3 stuffies, cute things and anything totally rad.

I agree, frog it and make soemthing else. Or give away to charity; I don't you would want to see the yarn again and think of him.

You could send it to the RedScarf Project - http://nownormaknits2.typepad.com/red_scarf_project_2008/ Yeah, I know, it's not red, but that's ok, they'll still use it Smiley

Or the Knit Your Bit for veterans project -

Charity or put it out of sight for a couple of months and then decide.

Donate it.  Someone will really appreciate it.

ug... i hate that!  I had the worst breakup ever where months and months down the line, the guy was like, i would like such and such cd back... i'd already thrown it away.  so i just said i didn't have it...  i'm just heartless like that...

it sucks that he didn't appreciate the scarf, but i think it would suck less if he had not given it back, even though he didn't wear it.  It was a gift, not yours... what are you going to do with it?  Did he happen to give back other items that you gave him? 

if the ex had given back his scarf that i made him, i'm not sure i'd frog it because whatever i made with it, will always have the same feelings... like a lingering ex-feeling. 

if it was expensive yarn/nice yarn, why not just stash it for awhile until the feeling of being dumped goes away, I'm sure by that time, a project will come up that will be perfect for it.

you can send it to me, I'll send you a new scarf in return...  Smiley

I agree.... I'd donate it to some worthy charity so someone else who really needs it would surely appreciate it more than your b/f did.

Donate it, yo.

Sorry to hear about the breakup.
