Hurrah! My new scarf is finished.
I think the top photo shows the colour best.
After blocking (which I did using my wires) it measures just over 6.5" and is approx 6' 6" long, so can be wrapped around my neck twice, or folded in half and the ends put through the loop.
I'm pleased with it. In fact, I might wear it this morning when I go out to knitting group.
