Happy New Year's Project!

Almost 5 feet of 1x1 rib:

Widening the scarf to 55 stitches has significantly increased the yarn requirements - initially the plan was to use 2 skeins of a blue colourway, 2 skeins of a bright multi colourway, and a single skein of a blue plus pastel skein as well as a single skein of a muted multi colourway. However, I have instead resorted to using up the random skeins of Mille Colori that I picked up from a clearance bin, as well as the leftovers from the first Mille Colori striped scarf that I knitted.
I am still debating whether I should use the same 2 colourways at the end of the scarf so that the 2 ends coordinate to some extent. However, in order to have adequate yarn, I might end up having to use 2 skeins which are predominantly browns and greys.
It's stash busting vs. aesthetics.
Luckily The Gambler is a) a guy and b) colourblind, so he is probably not going to be very concerned if the colour schemes don't "flow" throughout the scarf.

I think it looks great the way it is. No need to get all matchy-poo!

If he's not going to notice, I say go for stash busting! Besides, it's already stunning.

I also say go for the stash bust. I prefer a bit of color clash now and then.
