Very cool how you laid it over the Japanese Maple - it looks as though it is Fall! I have the same yarn - it makes a nice scarf.

This pattern works up beautifully. My cousin is in her first term at Montana State and is freezing from all the snow. I have crocheted several scarves from your patterns and she absolutely loves them. This pattern is my favorite. I particularly like the fringe you use. It's way prettier than the typical tassle fringe. Keep up the good work.
