first up is a scarf that i made for my mom. this delicious malabrigo was originally given to me by my friend but, when my mom saw me working on this scarf at thanksgiving, she professed her love of this shade of yellow. how can i resist the cutest mom on the planet? i don't. i started this ages ago but only finished it a few weeks ago.
pattern: scrunchable scarf (link) (rav link)
yarn: 1.5 skeins malabrigo merino worsted in sauterne
needles: us 8 or 9 ( i can't remember which but 8 and 9 are my scarf needles)
notes: not much to say except that i looove malabrigo. i actually ended up having 2 very different skeins of mal for this and so about a third of the scarf has more variegation than the rest of it, but that's mal for you and it's ok with me.
next up is a lucky 7 hat
yarn: leftover mal from the scarf (you can see where it gets stripey because i was alternating
needles: us 5
notes: the hat was a bit small but i think that's just cause i should have gone up a needle size. i blocked it a bit longer/bigger though and it's fine now. very easy pattern and i liked that the cables went all the way to the end of the pattern. you can see the cool crown here.
