What materials did you use? Brookfarm Alpaca in Jet Black (www.brookfarmalpaca.com) and Alpenglow Yarn Lusty Goat in Au Naturel (www.alpenglowyarn.com); both yarns were used doubled with a size N hook.

What are you most proud of? Being willing to spend $100 on yarn for a gift for myself. We've got to treat ourselves, crocheters!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try different color combinations; I think it will be stunning! Yellow & black? Orange and gold? Brown and tan? I will definitely be making another one! Also - I did not end off each color after every row, just dropped & picked up. It makes for one less attractive spot in the scarf, but hey, everybody has a back-of-the-neck, right!?

Like your suggestion for not ending each row, but dropping & picking up, makes for less weaving in and I like that! Yes we need to spend more for ourselves, I'm just not quite there yet, but you have given me the push for another step. Thanks.
