I decided on December 26th to make my Dad a scarf for his birthday. Not a big deal but his birthday is January 1st. I gave it to him on his birthday still on the needles. He loved it! He waned it to be a gentleman's scarf not one to wrap around his neck. I would work on it and think it's long enough. Take it to him for a fitting and he'd ask for another inch or so. Of course I'm make it more like four or so inches more. Finally last night he deemed it perfect. I took it home and bound it off and waiting to bring it to him.
