This caught my eye several months ago.
It sat at the top of my stash for a few months while trying to get me to pick up on the vibe it was sending me as to what it wanted to become.
Apparently my project radar was down for a while as I was unable to figure out what this beautiful brown and blue Malabrigo wanted to be.
So, I took it with me to knit night at the shop where I adopted it.
There, my LYS owner, Leslie, and I scoured books for inspiration. We narrowed it down to a couple of scarves (because Malabrigo is totally wasted if you don't get to feel it close to you!!)
I decided on this Criss-Cross Stitch Scarf.
It's about four inches wide and four and a half feet long. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern:
It's very easy, mindless knitting. I really like what the stitch pattern is doing for the color way/varigation.
I've decided this colorscheme reminds me of Siamese or Persian cats with their blue eyes (even if the browns are a bit too dark!)
On another note: I taught my first sock knitting class last night. Six ladies attended and it was really fun! We meet again in 2 weeks with cuffs/legs completed and ready to learn how to make a heel flap and and turn a heel!
Hope your projects are coming along swimmingly!
