Clown Barf...I mean...Trellis Scarf

I started the trellis scarf last night while watching Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason doing absolutely nothing embarrassing and mockable until four in the morning.

Remember when I first mentioned I'd be using this cotton candy colored yarn for this project, and I thought the colorway might be distracting? It is. Not because the yarn is stealing focus from the pattern, though. No...it's distracting because it makes me want cotton candy in the gross, "ugh but I've already had two pounds of cotton candy," sort of way. The project is coming along nicely, but I'm still not sold on this yarn:

[Also, do I really need to point out my coffee mug?]
A closeup of the scarf reveals the carnival colorway in all it's trellissy glory:

I don't know...thoughts? Opinions? I'm kind of in love with this pattern, but I don't think I'll want to wear anything this color. Ever. Does anyone have a mom/grandma/aunt/cousin that might like this as a gift? Part of me wants to buy the alpaca cloud yarn (in horizon or tide pool) and make another one for me ('cause I'm selfish like that). Another part of me knows that I have a bad track record when it comes to making a second one of anything (branching out, SOCK!, anyone?). Perhaps it's time to let the sun set on this project (the yarn colorway is called "sunrise" - ha...ha...?) and pick up again when I have the right yarn. Or maybe this is the right yarn, and I'm just being stubborn.

One more time for the cheap seats in the back:
