Yay, this was such a quick and enjoyable knit! Admittedly, it was already done last weekend. But I was so busy last week that the poor thing spend the entire week strapped onto my blocking maths. I felt some guilt, peeping at it in the mornings and feeling like I was applying medieval torture techniques to yarn. I didn’t want to take it off yet though, because I first wanted to take pictures before starting to wear it. But the pins have been taken out and pictures have been snapped.
I’m on a bit of a Malabrigo sock binge and again this is one colourway I love. I wasn’t sure how it would knit up, but I love how this shawl is very colourful without being very colourful (does that even make sense?). Still don’t think I would ever knit socks with it, seriously doubt it would be durable enough.
But this is perfect shawl yarn. And hat yarn, and mittens yarn and probably sweater yarn. The drape is so pwetty! I made the shawlette version of the pattern (perfect 1 skein project) but after blocking I think it can be called a proper shawl, size-wise.
And I have been such a good little knitter, I even immediately started turning my leftovers into hexipuffs. Seriously, do I earn knitting credit with this or something? Like knitting points I can later on exchange for someone else to sew in my seams or something. Earn 100 credits and your skeins of yarn will be wound up for you. How awesome would that be? Yes please!
