I started 2012 with some of the softest yarn I’ve ever used: Mmmmmmmmalabrigo! (OK, so there’s only supposed to be one M at the beginning of the word, but it’s just so yummmmmmy that I can’t resist editorializing.) And for the record: not scratchy/itchy at all, even with 50% wool content!
Lookee what I made:
Not to worry, I fixed the wonkiness in the cast-off row (at the bottom right of the photo). But not until after the photoshoot (obviously). And the photo seems to emphasize the taupe-ish shades of the yarn, but the maroon segments are a bit more dominant in person.
My notes/mods here.
I know you’ve all been expecting me to show you the red item I was knitting in December, but it has stalled out at the “needs buttons, blocking and photography” stage. Once I get it back on track (i.e., finished for real), I’ll post pics.
