It's crap. I'd be embarrassed if I were you. Get rid of it before anyone thinks you really knit like that.

I happen to have a place we can hide it - a "graveyarn" if you will - and no one will ever know you had anything to do with it....

Is it bad that my first thought about that scarf was, "oh, I don't live in a house big enough to block that"? It is lovely, though!
