Since the completion of the afghan, and while I am awaiting the arrival of my order from Blue Moon Fiber Arts, I have turned my attention to the basket weave scarf.
It's a quick project, one that would have been finished a while ago if it were not for the afghan and socks. I'm up to 30" in length and it's 5" wide. I'm not sure how long it will finally be - I usually just keep going until I like the length and look of a scarf. Anyone know what the standard length or width for a scarf are? Are there standard lengths or widths for scarves?
In a two-for-one type special, here are progress photos of the scarf showing different lighting techniques (thanks for the tips, Queen!).

Quite a difference, would you agree? I'm impressed. I'll be using this technique from now on, especially if/when I start making things to sell on Etsy.
Here's one last shot of the scarf where you can really see the edges of the scarf. They kinda ripple a bit.
I'm thinking I'm going to need to edge/border this scarf...but I'm not sure how I'll end up doing it. Suggestions?
