About a year ago, last fall, I had just bought my first skeins of Malabrigo Yarns Sock and was anxious to start knitting. I had an idea for a pattern but couldn’t really get the to colors I had to fit with the pattern and I didn’t cast on.
Around the same time, this was the view from my window. Three trees, one in
bright orange and the other two in dark red (yea, the orange one had sort of started to loose its leaves byt the time I got around to take pictures but if you look at the ground you might get an idea of what I saw) and suddenly I knew in what colors I wanted my new project to be – red and orange.
Unfortunately I never had the chance to cast on last fall. This year though, it was time for me and my project.
Meet Suki by Miriam Pike.
Suki is a darling and I just love her. Fits me perfectly and works well with almost every outfit.
She is knit with Malabrigo sock, colors Ravelry Red and Terracota, a lovely yarn and equally lovely colors.
Suki was a pure delight to knit, from the cast on till the bind off even though it was a picot bind off that took
forever a long time. The lace part was probably the best but all of it was great.
I’m really happy with this shawl. It’s as they say, all good things come to she who waits and this was totally worth the wait. This fall when I look out the window and see those same trees I can smile, happily knowing that my shawl rests beautifully around my neck.
