Old Crocheted Scarf

I made this scarf for my mom when I first learned to crochet five years ago, before I took photos of the things I created. I had forgotten about it, but when I was visiting her for Christmas, she wore it, and I was shocked by how gorgeous it is! Did I really make that? I was impressed with myself! I asked her if I could photograph it for my catalog (aka my Flickr photo set). Unfortunately, the photos just don't do it justice. It is rich and shimmery and nuanced in person.
The pattern is the Cluster Stitch Fiesta Scarf from the book Vogue Knitting Crocheted Scarves Two. I used the same yarn they featured in the book: Fiesta Yarns La Luz Multi (silk) in the color wild oak, which if I remember correctly was not inexpensive yarn, but seeing the scarf again 5 years later, was totally worth every penny.
