how long do you like your scarf?

I am knitting a 6-inch wide scarf and it is now 30 inches long, hangs down to just above my waist. How long do you like yours to be? It's fairly thick, as I'm holding two wool threads together.

Great idea!

I LOVE your squares. Will you sew them together into something eventually? or you can do a knit-along with them, and trade with others? Cool!
