'My So Called Scarf'

I started this scarf AGES ago & it was finally finished last week.

It has already gone to it's new home & my friend was so touched that she was nearly crying. The colours are 'totally her' & it'll look fantastic with her winter coat.

I think the yarn might be Malabrigo Aquarella in Coronilla but I don't have a LYS that stocks this so can't compare the two yarns. I loved knitting with it & it was such a bargain that I had to buy more when I went back to Coldspring for my birthday (obviously)!

I'd got into the habit of having lots of things OTN's at once & am trying to reduce my WIP's down to a manageable level & I've got another FO to be revealed soon......
