Ruffled Again

A friend's trip cancelled at the last minute plus the recent acquisition of DVR meant that I had much time on the couch last weekend. I was getting tired of my 2nd Ruffles scarf and so I was determined to finish.

Tada!



(Did you all notice the lovely exposed brick wall? In case not, here's another shot.)



So here's the problem. I'm not sure I like it and part of me thinks I look like a complete dork wearing it. When I made the first one for my friend Christina, I made it out of an amazing light green 100% bamboo yarn. I really liked the way the ruffles hung with that yarn. And within 10 minutes of presenting it to C., she got two compliments from random strangers. So of course I thought "I gotta get me one of those!" For mine, I decided to go with the Classic Elite as specified in the pattern.

Here's Christina in her Ruffles.



I need honest opinions- no holds barred. Will I look like an ass on the streets of Manhattan wearing this scarf? (and by this, i mean, will i look like more of an ass than most people?) Posted by Picasa

You will look like an ass, so you should just give it to your sister.

the style is totally cool, shav. i suggest you try darker colors and make the ruffles a tiny bit wider.

you won't look like an ass, babe. on the contrary, you'll look hip. thaosky

What the heck are you talking about. Your latest creation is totally envy-inspiring. An elegant and classy accessory to any outfit or outwear ensemble. If you still have doubts, consider that this different yarn may impact how the scarf looks after a few wears. For a true test, just wear it and see how many "where'd you get that" queries pour in.

Sweet brick wall. Wish I had one of those...

On the scarf, I go with beneficiary of ruffles - wear it out shopping one day and see what people say - I guarantee they'll dig it.

Just don't wear it with that dominatrix outfit from a few entries back or you WILL look like an ass...

I think it looks great on you. Definitely keep it. And the exposed brick. Love that, too.
