You are much better than I. I would have told her if it needs to be longer, you knit it longer, or I would have made her send it back to me, and frog the cast off and started from there. When someone complains about what I knit for them, I ask for it back, and never make them anything else. Sorry DD was a pain when DGS loved his scarf.

Hooray! You finished!!! It looks *great*, btw! LOL, I am working on a scarf right now that I am wondering if I will have enough yarn to finish the way it started-blue, red stripe, then blue middle (I am running low on this yarn! ) Then I have another red stripe and a little more blue...I'm sweatin' too.

It's for my Dson who is 7 and I am sure he will be kind enough to wear it regardless. Or else!

I think it looks great!! How old is he? My boys would love a scarf someone made for them! (They are 6 and 7)!

(Note to self: when grandma makes somethin for the kids, don't mention any flaws it may have!) Poo on your DD

I think you are a saint to put so much love and effort into a scarf for your grandson after already having made him one. I agree with msmelody about having DD send the original scarf back -- at least then someone else could use it. The scarf looks great and I'm sure your grandson will love it!

I think it came out great! Good idea on the garter stitch in the middle

Thanks for the comments everyone. This is one FO I will be glad to see go to it's home! I usually buy more yarn than is needed for a project, but I was raiding the stash for this scarf. Oh well, it's done now, thankfully!

Well that sucks that he was happy with it until his mother complained about it. Good luck with finishing this one!

Hang on a minute...
Phew - that was nerve wracking knitting by installments - am very relieved you found the necessary for those last five stitches.

Hang on a minute though = is this the DD with the dress in the box? Far be it for me to condone violence - but if it is the same one - I would have to say that I think she deserves a poke in the eye.

I think its a lovely scarf and I am sure you are restricting such bounty to the grandkids!
