When I bought this yarn, the color called to me; it's much brighter in real life than in the scan. I thought I was buying Malabrigo, but it turns out I grabbed Manos instead. No matter, it's the silk blend so it's still really soft and drapey. This scarf came to life because I needed something to do instead of paying attention to Max Payne. I got almost the whole thing knitted in the movie, mostly because it was 5 hours long. (Okay, maybe not, but it sure felt like it.)

It was a really easy, mindless project. Just 17 stitches makes a narrow stockinette strip, then the drop stitches widen it significantly. I'm going to find some ribbons to weave through the drop stitch spaces and make the ends scrappy with fabric somehow.
