not yet, I do knit but I have not found any yellow that I really like!
LOL yea I am thinking about changing my scarf.. its yellow but has butterflys and its very thin!  I am thinking I need a warm one for Chicago
mama...we bought yellow fleece from joanne's fabric...if you dont have one near by, you can order online...the fleece is 3.99 a yard...i bought enough to make 6 so my husband can do a test run on it, plus he bought me some blue to make a different scarf for another occasion, with the ribbon roll and spool of thread, cost us 14.00
how much do you need for each scarf?
just want to know where do i get the scarf , do i just buy a purple on (thats my sons div color) or do we oder them ?
theresa..- some are buying a yellow one, some are making them from fleece fabric ( no sew, easy project). If you want to make one. Use a scarf you already have as a pattern or look it up on line. Lots of directions on no-sew scarfs  out there. Just a thought.
thank you i will try that
Anymore pictures of scarves that people have made??

If your just a girlfriend and kinda new would it be ok if me and my recruits mom wore them??

Yes! by all means wear a yellow scarf, and be sure to let your SR know what we are all up to! The more scarves the better at the PIR. I am sure everyone here would agree on that!! Welcome.
Absolutely, I'm a wife and wearing one! So is my SR's aunt and mom!

So what is the final choice, yellow with our division color in it, or blue with our division in it?  Does it matter if vertical or horizontal.  Those in 072 division color is white, here is a yellow & white scarf at LL Bean for $9.99

http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/67701?from=SR&feat=sr  (even has a sailor's wheel)  I read that you can customize the scarf to any color(s) and can have the Navy anchor instead.....
