Scarf fo

Yippee. I've finished my Kathryn Alexander scarf using my stash yarns. So the colors are quite different from those in the book. I used a lot of Brown Sheep sport wt and knitting wt but I used the 3.75mm needles in the pattern and I got t he gauge. I found that blocking helped a lot. I haven't added buttons as I'm not sure why one needs buttons on a scarf. Take a look at the pictures.

Hi Marian,
I would love to see the scarf, but for some reason, there is no photo when I pull up your page. Is it somewhere else, or is my computer going weird?
