two's better than one?


when i fell off the wagon the first time, i acquired some malabrigo. i used it to knit a super simple & basic scarf ... as i knitted it in seedstich, while carrying the yarn in my left hand. i wanted to learn how to knit with the yarn in my left hand, so just in case i want to knit a cardigan totally in seedstitch. i think the combination of gauge and fiber made this (so far) one time experience seriously pain free!

what's hiding underneath the seedstitch scarf? oh ... that would be the string of pearls chickami. i actually finished this days ago, but hadn't woven in the ends ... and then there's that whole thing of "what do i wear this with?!"

knitting has been spotty at best lately. i get moments here & there. and the timing doesn't necessarily coincide with opportunity. sigh ......

ps. i have another hank of malabrigo ... what will it become ?!

I LOVE the cases of wine in the background. Nothing says Agent Gray more than a wool scarf paired with a sparkly knit top in front of wine boxes!

I say it's time to have a party at agent gray's house!

don't get too excited ... someone else drank the wine long ago and left me with boxes of photographs and yearbooks!

I think the sparkle cami would look good with a lot of things - a black skirt or pants, or even some nice dark wash jeans. It is so cute!

Your chickami looks great.. and I love the way the scarf turned out~ My first chickami was bulletproof because I made it from Sugar n' Cream cotton. I had no idea there were different sorts of cotton.. lol

Your chickami is awesome and it will be a great layering piece or on it's own.
