Scarf or shoulder wrap

At the Shepton Mallet Knit and Stitch show I bought a couple of balls of a novelty yarn from BeeBee Wools who specialise in fancy yarns.  The instructions with it were to cast on 40 stitches on 10mm needles and knit in garter stitch until you had used it all.  Finished it (terrible accident at cast off when for some reason it started to unravel itself, but ok now).

It's in what I would call cappucino colours.  I think I would have liked it a bit longer and if I knew then what I know now, I would have cast on 30 stitches.

On the upside, it's wide enough and just long enough to wear around the shoulders as a wrap with a shawl pin at the front.

Love the yarn, and good save on the unraveling!
