I've finished!

My scarf is done, in fact I finished it about 2 weeks ago but I haven't sent it yet because I'm not sure I like it. I was wondering whether to start another one but I don't think I will have time. Here is a picture of it. What do you think?

Your scarf's lovely, why don't you like it? Nice colour, nice pattern. You would have time to do another one if you went for it, but I think your pal would be happy with this one!

I think it's lovely as well. In fact - I want to know what pattern it is ;).

I know how you feel though - the last scarf exchange I did I wasn't too happy with the finished product either. But as the deadline was up I sent it on with some other little gifties to "make up for it". I never heard if she liked it or not but I like to think the scarf found a good home and she was at least pleased with the over-all package she got. And cheer up - I just cast on today for my project and fully believe I still have time to make the deadline - so if you absolutely can't STAND it there probably is still time to try something else!

It's a gorgeous scarf, and you should be proud of creating it, Marie-France! It's a very classic type of pattern that will go with so many different outfits. It looks like it has exquisite drape to it, which would look so elegant with a suit, dress or slacks and top. It looks very soft, and I'll bet that yarn was just delightful to work with.

I know it's easy to second-guess our work, and to find other patterns as we're working diligently on our projects, and wonder if the recipient would like one of those patterns better.

But the only reason I see for "starting over" would be if you love the scarf so much you don't want to part with it!

When you put so much of yourself into a project, and you finish it ahead of the deadline, when you've chosen gorgeous yarn--you have to know you are sending the recipient a part of yourself, of your life, and that's something that makes every handmade gift so very special.

I can tell you that if I were the recipient of this scarf, I would adore it, and wear it with gusto and delight.

Send it and know it will be loved!

I don't understand why you don't like it, you did a great job!
