A scarf is much more practical for me. It's quicker to knit, and I will wear a scarf. My friend Erin showed me the shop sample of Multnomah when we were knitting at our LYS, and I really liked it. One skein of sock yarn? I could do that!
Here is a close up of the lace border.
It's a very quick knit compared to my other shawl. And it's great to be able to use just one skein of sock yarn. And I have actually worn it!
