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 :)

I’ve been looking forward to making this for quite a while. Lovely Malabrigo Sock in warm Autumn colors. My summer vacation in Småland was a perfect occasion to start this. A straight forward shawl is mindless enough to bring on vacation. I’m glad i did. It rained for the whole week. Very autumn like, and I would have finished it if it wasn’t because I had to rip back as I changed my mind for a size large instead of medium.
