Knitting Notes

Pattern: Saroyan Scarf by Liz Abinante
Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino in the indicieta colorway
Needles: Size 10 Circs

This project went so fast, I never bothered to photograph it or blog it until it was done. The pattern is really easy, but the leaf repeat is long enough to keep things interesting, so I was never bored, and it's in worsted weight yarn, so it finishes in a snap.

As for that yarn, I can only continue with my Malabrigo fangirlishness, and say that I love it. It's so lovely to work with, and I love the colors, and you get the idea. The day I don't enjoy working with Malabrigo is the day the world ends.

So, once I finished that, I cast on the Live Oak Shawlette from the Summer 2011 Knitscene. I actually have the yarn they used for the pattern (Madeleine Tosh sock), so I'm using that, in the fiord colorway. So far, it's been a fun knit.

In other news, I've knit up as many hexipuffs for the Bee Keeper's quilt in the similar weights of sock yarn I have lying around (I have some lighter weights as well, but there's less of those, so I may save them for ornaments of something). I can see why this pattern is so popular - it's totally addicting, and I can knock of three in an evening.
