There’s a price difference of $7 per skein …!

Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino · 51% silk · 49% merino · $9.5 per skein

Soya yarn from Netto Supermarket · 70% wool · 30% soya fibers · $2.5 per skein

Kid Seta by Madil Yarns, colorway: 926 + Lace by Malabrigo Yarn, colorway: Frank Ochre

This is going to be the softest most beautifully colored shawl ever  ♡

A strand of kid mohair and silk, held together with Malabrigo Lace 100% Merino in the shades of ochre, yellow and a little bit of olive/lime  …

Can’t decide upon the right pattern as the yarn is so georgous, but I guess it doesn’t really matter as long as it includes knitting …

Finishing the shawl

August 14, 2011 § Leave a comment


Though I only missed a few rows of My Swedish Summer Autumn Shawl when we headed back home from our vacation, it took me three weeks to finish it. It only felt right to work on the shawl in front of the bonfire and not back home in the living room …

Eventually I succeeded and I love the colors, the variegation and the smoothness of Malabrigo Sock ♡ The jagged edge is not intentional though, but it’s really hard to pin 106 inches straight :)
