milkweed

I wish you could have been here to share my glee when I unpinned the blocking Milkweed scarf. It was soft and lovely before I blocked it, but in its finished state, it’s phenomenal. Soft, drapey, scrunchy, and yeah… soft. I am now actively looking for the next opportunity to knit with Malabrigo Sock for not-socks.

I’m not sure what else to say about this project! It’s just that good. I’m in love with the finished scarf! I don’t often make the exact same project more than once, but I am considering the possibility of knitting some very similar designs. I love the garter stitch and the great use for sock yarn.

This blog is going to look a little like a FO-parade for the next little bit. After this post, I have two more finished objects to show off… and all the while I’ll be furiously trying to finish up another one in the background. I have a sweater on the needles – that I haven’t shown you yet – and I’m trying to get it finished in time for the Lorna’s Laces knit-along for the Pioneer sweater, which I’m looking forward to getting started.
