Slinky silky

Another of last year's makes finally surfacing on the blog.
It's a scarf made from Rowan Purelife Revive, shade Ironstone, 3 skeins I think
It's just k2tog yfwd right sides, purl across wrong side rows, with a little garter stitch border.
When I was almost finished it I saw the striking resemblance between it and Interweave's Montego Bay and although I don't have that mag I was probably influenced by it on some level.
It pulls strongly on the bias and I have just let it hang naturally rather than trying to hold back the tide in the blocking process.
The reverse side is at least as nice as the front side.
I haven't used it yet, in fact it was sitting for months waiting for the ends to be sewn in and fringe finished, so it will hit the world this week.
Needless to say, it reminds me of fishing nets with the ball floats on them.
