Fresh and Tangy Crochet Scarf

Voila!

I've crocheted my first scarf and learned a lot in doing so, mostly because I made up my own pattern. A fairly simple task, yes, but it provided some challenges to a crochet newbie whose projects to date only include a granny square afghan and two milk jug covers.

A friend described my colour choices as "creative", but I think the persimmon, amethyst and green-yellow are ultra fresh and tangy. Besides, they're my sister-in-law's favourite colours and the scarf is for her.

Do you like my fancy colour names? I've become addicted to Wikipedia's List of Colors, which is a particularly elegant tool when I list vintage scarves on eBay.
