While at Stitches West, I picked up two skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in Verde Azul for Cosmic Pluto’s Just Enough Ruffles scarf. Super fast/fun knit, although the bind off is killer. I increased my cast on number by 40 stitches, since I’m tall and like my scarfs nice and long. It came out just about perfect.
Color is more accurate in the first picture.
I’ve also finally made some progress in the edging of my Tina shawl. I’d been stalled out forever, because I found the pattern’s edging really unpleasant to knit. The girls at my knit night suggested changing it, and duh, that solved the problem.
I’m about 2/3 of the way through 1 of 4 sides, so still a long way to go, but I’ve been managing to knit about 5 repeats a day. At this pace, I should be done with it in about 3 weeks. According to Ravelry, I cast on for this shawl in October 2006 (!!!!) so I’m looking forward to finishing it and moving on to something new.
