Not a Sock

Can you believe it? I knit something that wasn't a sock. I know, right? This is the newest trend in scarfs/shawls going through the blogosphere. It's a long, narrow triangle scarf, but it's rather shawl-like in that you can drape it around your back and shoulders with enough "tails" to hang from your shoulders. The pattern designer shows it as modeled by Lou in the first photo. With the point in the front, the tails wrapped around behind and tied in the front. This one is make from a red/pink Malabrigo worsted weight yarn. It's lovely to knit, fantastic to wear. This was knit as a gift for a friend who's favorite color is the combination of pink and red. The birthday party is tomorrow. Finish just in time.
