If the Silk Garden had cooperated, this could have been a very nice two-skein scarf. Instead, the Mandalay Silk ran out right before the light pink on the Silk Garden - which I really wanted to include, to balance the black that showed up on the other side. Therefore, purchase of another skein of Mandalay was required. This will likely lead to the purchase of yet another skein, since my sister would like to knit a cabled scarf out of it.
The top of the photo shows that the stitch is technically reversible, though the yarn choices make an effective right and wrong side.
