Holly the scarf does look great.
Kome what yarn did you use on yours - it looks really beautiful. Did you give it to your mom yet? I gave my mother hers on New Years Eve. She was so excited she sat around my house wearing it. She was very cute. Now dad wants one - ugh. Hee hee hee. I took some pictures of it before I gave it to mom, maybe I can post it here if I figure out how.
