What do you do when you fall in love with a sock yarn but really aren't in the mood to knit socks? You make a stole.
This was my carry-along project during most of the winter. It's been done for a few weeks but I had to wait for a decent day to block it. And by decent, I mean above freezing. Don't let the sunshine fool you.
The inspiration came from Knit Drink Tink via ravelry. I only made one real mod, which was to add beads.
The wrap wanted some weight at the ends and beads seemed like a better choice than barbells.

To be honest, I don't know what I'm going to do with this, simply because I knit it just to knit it. I am not a big wearer-of-shawls. Still. It's pretty, if I do say so myself. Which I do.
