Remember that green laceweight yarn I talked about getting at the stash swap? Well, I paired it with some black Malabrigo and began Stephen West’s Daybreak shawl, as I had dreamed about. The bad news? The Malabrigo is a lot thinner than the Knit Picks, so while the gauge was great for the main colour, it’s a little too open for my taste in the black. That being said, I decided to continue on, hoping that the Malabrigo will bloom a little after blocking it. It’s been slow going, but this day off thing is fabulous! I got tons of knitting done today (not to mention lots of Stargate watching), and it’s now over 30″ wide and 10″ deep! See?
