I started this scarf a few years ago - definitely a long ignored work in progress. But its finally finished and I think it looks great. The minor problem is that I have WAY too many scarves and I can't think of who to gift this to - luckily Christmas is coming up (ish) so I shouldn't have too much of a problem. :) I got the silver material as a scrap bundle in Dublin and wanted to add some more material to make it longer than it would be on its own. Its a fake suede but feels nice against my skin. Its padded with some fleece-y cotton fabric - the same stuff from this scarf.
