Ages ago, when I was back in CA, I bought the most delicious skein of Malabrigo sock.  I knew it would be a shawl at some point.

So just before the Christmas holiday, I cast it on thinking it would be good mindless knitting.  Then I spent the Christmas holiday getting drunk and seeing old friends, and doing everything except knitting. I fished it out once we got back to Cambridge and finally got it all finished and blocked.  I LOVE IT!  The size makes it great to wrap around your neck as a ‘keep me warm like a scarf’, and the pattern was simple and easy to remember.

I can’t say enough about how much I love Malabrigo, and Malabrigo sock was every bit as pleasant to knit with as everything else it seems they do.
