There's really no need to mention the shaggy hair. That's IN these days, you know. They actually have hair gel called Bed Head to achieve that look.

The scarf is nice, by the way. I'd have expected it to be longer with all that yarn, though. Did you use all of those balls mentioned? Or, did you use leftovers?

It is a bit longer than it looks, he had it bunched funny. I had about 1/4 a ball of each of the colors left over.

And yet another awesome pattern! Start sending in those submissions, girl!

BTW - my husband just shaved his head (he has been progressively shortening his hair for the past few months, and now he doesn't have any). I would love it if he would let it go long and shaggy! The grass is always greener, right?

The scarf looks great! Speaking of scarves, I'm supposed to be knitting one right now, for my sister. Who is coming tomorrow. Whoops. :)
