Two reasons to update.
Firstly, it grew way more than I was expecting in blocking and is now roughly 85 inches across the span. I wore it today as a scarf and it's perfect - very warm without being too bulky.
Secondly, I took some pictures of me in it. I'd love to pretend this is me au naturel but, to be honest, I have been playing around with Snapchat in an effort to remain down with the kids and this is one of their filters. It is just a skin brightener/smoother but I find the effect quite startling. I dread to think what that says about how I look normally.
