pink & green ….. pink & green

happy labor day!

i love a weekday off, especially a monday. however, tomorrow will be twice as challenging.

1st of the month, first business day of the month, … after a 3 day weekend ….

but, back to the knitting!


pink & green!

on the left is my banana leaf shawl. it's lovely. i've never knitted with malabrigo lace before --- but all the rumors are true.

it is delicate (though i've not broken it yet). the end of my scarf has gotten fuzzy (especially the tail where i cast on), and it's deliciously soft!

i bought two hanks of yarn. i fell in love with the 1st hank (a soft pink). but, i could not find a good match for hank #2. i chose the closest one to it.

when i wound the yarn, the yarn i started with was the nice soft pink. as i progressed, the shade grew darker.

i wound the second hank. it was darker --- so i rewound to find the other end which was lighter. the colors are blending well.


the color changes are not due to the angle of my camera or the light, but the dye of the yarn.


here's the green part … sock #2 of marco's socks.

now, both projects have entered the realm of "mindlessness" … i can work on either, without a pattern.
