Giving away what you'd like to keep

I've always thought that wishing you could keep something for yourself that you bought (or made) for a gift is a good sign you've chosen well.  A couple of weeks ago, I finished this little scarf I intend for a gift.  And I think it's turned out rather well.

I won't get to give it to its recipient for a while, so thus this picture of me.

I think there's enough of the yarn left to knit another scarf if I reverse the colors.  Maybe that one can be mine, or maybe it'll be another gift.  By the way, if you're reading this, the scarf pictured isn't for you -- sorry.   The colors are prettier in person, and the yarn is altogether fabulous.  The pattern is just interesting enough, and well written.  Maybe I'll get better pictures, in better light, when I give it to its intended wearer.  What do you think?  A good gift?

  3. I know the feeling! I made a quilt for Piper - Tree of Life in autumn and spring colors. I love it so much, I have to make one to keep!
