I've wanted to make Ene's Scarf since I first bought Scarf Style a few years ago. The pattern was a great match for my 3+ balls of thrifted Scheepjes Invicta sock yarn -- I used almost every inch of the yarn, literally. The pattern was written for laceweight yarn on 4.0mm needles; I used a 4.0mm needle, too, and my shawl came out a bit bigger (68" x 35") than the original (56" x 32").
Held out full, the dimensions are a bit too Stevie Nicks, but it's a great size for wrapping:
It's not soft like merino or silk, of course, but it's not a dainty shawl, so the coarser texture of the sock yarn fits the design well, I think. It's substantial and sturdy, but still drapey. Plus it just looks awesome, if I do say so myself. The colour is perfect for its coarseness -- it's like a healthy, whole-grain shawl with lots of (wait for it...) fibre.
I'm sure my neighbours wondered what on earth I was doing twirling around all by myself in my driveway. I didn't really realize how prominent the garbage cans would be in these shots! Charming, aren't they? Anyway, A+ for Ene's Scarf -- I've already worn it out and about a couple of times, and I'm very happy with it. Plus, it's not so precious that I can't stuff it into my bag when I get somewhere and take it off. (Now I'm knitting Adamas with my Buttercream merino, which is definitely more on the precious side of shawldom.)
