Moebius Fibonacci scarf

In response to the many requests (well, one indirect question) here is a pic of one of my Moebius scarves, made more or less from a pattern from Cat Bordhi's book, "A Treasury of Magical Knitting". The stripes do not follow her pattern, but are in a partial Fibonacci sequence (I can HEAR you say, Oh, right, Da Vinci code!), but coming from a long line of geeks I knew about Fibonacci numbers BEFORE Dan Brown brought them to the attention of the world. It's a bit long on my model for this pic, I know, but it's a pretty good length on an adult, and can even be used as a hood/scarf thing. I need to make two more for Xmas, so I'd better get knitting. Love the I-cord bind-off, by the way, this was my first exposure to that technique, and I have become simply mad for i-cord, whether cast-on, built-in, bound-off or otherwise.
