WIP Wednesday: Malabrigo March!

Posted March 2, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

Another WIP Wednesday!  Things are continuing.  The February Lady Sweater has pretty much gone back into procrastinatory hibernation (but will likely be pulled out when the whim strikes).  The design-socks are still being kept away from cameras, and that leaves two things.  Two?!  Yes.  Two.

A Shawl!  Well…whatever it is, it’s sure a bright pink.  That’s the Brandywine Shawl, designed by Romi Hill, and I’m attempting to knit it from Allison Avery Premium Hand-Dyed Yarn (colourway: Girlie).  If the yarn looks familiar, it means you have a good eye.  I attempted a homebrew version of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Lenore out of that yarn. It was ripped back when I realized that the challenge had gone out of the project and the yarn was a little thin for the task of being lace socks. It’s not the only thing I’ve attempted from it. I tried a plain pair of socks (flashing & pooling issues) and a pair of socks that used some pretty fancy yarn-overs (thinness of the yarn, again).  I think it works great as a shawl!  Much nicer!

Second thing on my needles is my Shur’tugal Socks by Alice Yu.  They’re my March Skinflint Socks.  Say it with me: Mmmmmmalabrigo!  Apparently, March is “Malabrigo March” or “Malabrigo Madness”.  I can get behind that!

Last on the list is the spinning.  We’re down 50g of Fleece Artist BFL Sliver and have started the second 50g.  I’m thinking possibly of doing a 2-ply.  Might be fun!
