Tempting was my second to last cast on of last year. One can not let Malabrigo Twist sit around idly for months – that is just plain wrong.
So I cast on the 160 stitches and knit an inch. Just an inch, Jacie said it just had to be on the needles. Jacie would also like me to point out that I abuse the system she set up. It’s a great beginners pattern. 2×2 rib for oh… forever. Make some sleeves, attach them, knit more 2×2 rib. Nothing super complicated.
It was a good project to take to knitting – even if I mess up, fixing a 2×2 rib doesn’t make me throw sharp objects or curse. I finished knitting on Thursday night right after knitting. Saturday morning I spent most of SnB weaving the ends in. And for some weird reason there was about 8 million of them. A few were because kitty likes to chew on the malabrigo and detach it from the skein. The other issue was I alternated skeins – so when it came down to making sleeves and reattaching them I had to break the yarn far too many times.
Ribbon was purchased yesterday afternoon – after an epic afternoon of 5 Guys Burgers and Fries and yarn shopping with the girls.
I think it’s fits pretty well. I had a hard time taking pictures of my self where it didn’t look all wonky. But it’s like wearing a hug. Malabrigo Twist is so warm and squishy and made of awesomeness. I think everyone should go out and buy some right now. I have 4 more skein of Indeceta waiting in the stash….oh lovely yarn. Not sure what you will become but it will be something great, I know it.
I also finished up the brown toe up Seeded Ribbing socks yesterday/this am. I had to weave the ends in this morning before promptly putting them on my feet.
I am trying out the new Ravelry project sharing option with the project links. 🙂
