Scarves are better than shawls...

Shawls are so pretty! I am in awe of some of the beautiful lacy ones that my Ravelry friends have knitted. I made one, and it drove me nuts. It came out fine, but I got so bored in the middle, I despaired of ever finishing it. And I've never worn it!

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!
