Voila! Finished just in time for a birthday for…ME! With two lovely hanks of Malabrigo Oceanos I’ve knit:
A scrunchable scarf–it started out as My So Called but I wasn’t feeling it. I wish I had a fancier scarf to show off the yarn, but Scrunchable is always a good go-to. It’s nice and long, all the better to smooooosh up to my face to bask in the softness.
A pair of Fetching–eh, I don’t know why I did this. I knew the cables wouldn’t show up, and they don’t. And I’m not into fingerless mitts, etc. I don’t wear them, they seem pointless to me. But I felt the need to make Fetchin so–oh well, I’ll wear them since they’re Malabrigo :teehee: . I gotta say though, not a big fan of the Picot bind-off for this, makes the edges roll up too much.
And finally–my favorite–Calorimetry! I love this, it’s ridiculously warm. I altered the pattern, as I gather many did. As written the pattern makes a rather unnecessarily monster-sized headband (and this coming from a girl with a gigantic melon, who can’t wear store bought hats). So, I only cast on 84ish stitches, and I only repeated the short-wrap rows 9 times (instead of 15). I’m quite pleased with it!
And oh yes–Calorimetry took me about one hour to knit, start to finish. Such a fun quick knit! I’m really surprised by how much I like it and the fact that I’ll probably even wear it.
So…even though I almost never wear gloves, NEVER wear scarves, and NEVER EVER wear headgear–I will absolutely be wearing each of these items tomorrow. If only to dwell in the glory of Malabrigo. (Besides, I think our “high” tomorrow is like 10 degrees).
(This was my first experience knitting with the mmmmM–I want MORE!)
