Yes I agree a skinnier scarf would look better.... I love the colours and she will definitely be noticed wearing it xx

thanks everyone I feel a little better- I like the idea of a skinnier scarf- maybe I'll make it again with half the stitches.

she loves bright happy colors and wears flamboyant clothing, and I really thought the colors would be perfect. so, I think I'll make it skinnier.....

thank you!!!!

I think it's beautiful, but it's not something I would wear myself. You see her every day.. does she like bright colors and wear them? I do think a long skinny scarf might be a better bet..then it becomes a fashion statement.

I agree with others about making it skinnier and a lot longer.

I blocked the h*ll out of it, and now it is 5 1/2 feet long. I also found coordinating glittery yarn for fringe. I think it is much improved- thanks SO much for all the suggestions.

Wow! Your additions made it look really festive and holiday-ish. I liked it before, but it seems so much...happier now. I actually made myself a few long skinny scarves out of LB's Incredible. I get complimented on them whenever I wear them, so I think your friend will definitely get noticed while wearing this one!

Oh, I know what it reminds me of! A Christmas tree! (We always had really colorful and bright Christmas trees growing up. No plain 'ol white lights for our household. It was color or nothing!)
