I can take it- is this hideous? improved #16
Please be honest- I made this drop stitch ribbon scarf as a present for my secretary. she's a lovely, colorful, vibrant person and I thought this beautiful ribbon yarn would be perfect for her.

but now that it is finished, I'm thinking it is hideous.

What to do?!



I do have back- up ideas, so it wouldn't be a total disaster if I didn't give it. But I just love the fall colors. (sigh)

Hrmmm... I like it. I think I would like it more as a super skinny scarf. My best friend is one of those very colorful individuals, and she likes it too.

I think it's lovely and vibrant. Not quite my colors, but definately lovely nonetheless.

If she is a vibrant person, I think she will just love this. Go for it!

I think it's hideous. You'd better send it right off to me so I can.. ummm... make sure she never sees it.
Honestly, I absolutely LOVE it! I'm not a particularly vibrant person but I could find at least 5 things in my closet right now to wear with that scarf. I like the colors AND the stitch.

Hey, I LOVE it! I would go ahead and give it to her. I mean, if she really loves bright, vibrant colors, she will love it. It's beautiful.

Colorful scarf for a colorful person, I think using the ribbon with those colors adds to the greatness.

I think it looks really nice, personally not for me but it is really bright and colorful.

I agree with above, maybe if it was made into a skinnier scarf.

I like the colors but I think I would like the scarf better if it was skinny.
