a malabrigo diversion
i ordered some laceweight malabrigo in olive.
it's gorgeous. perfect green with more of a golden hue than a bluish one. definitely olive and not hunter. i always prefer olive over hunter.
it's malabrigo, you know. it's soft, airy, lofty and lush. i had to knit it up into something right away, so i started kniting the shetland triangle from wrap style.
this blob turned into this wet wool triangle.
which turned into a shawlette that i am not sure how to wear.
back on the front?
or back in the back?
wait, is there a back at all? i don't know. but i do know that this shetland triangle is pretty and soft and yummy and i love it. i knit it while watching lots of episodes of arrested development so it is also a happy shawl with a sense of humor.
the finished dimensions are smaller than those in the book, but it's still good. it's about three feet by 1.5 feet but it scrunches up nicely around my neck. soooooo soft. yum.
