The scarf is elegant: beautiful color and pattern stitch. It'll keep you warm and look wonderful at the same time.
Scarves can be a bit tedious, can't they? I think you need a rich interior life to knit one.
(I'm not sure what's causing the slight bow at the cast on. It won't even be noticeable when worn. The only thing I can think might help is to cast on 1-2 fewer sts and increase on the first row or cast on with a smaller size needle and immediately change to the working size.)
