Second verse, similar to the first!

The second small shawl is complete.


This is Multnomah (Ravelry link) by Kate Flagg. It's a lovely use of the classic feather and fan pattern, don't you think? I knit this in one week using US4 (3.5mm) needles and one skein of Malabrigo Sock in the beautiful Indiecita colorway. The picture makes the colors look more distinct than they are in person; they sort of blend into each other in a very pleasing way. This sock yarn gives such a lovely drape to the project! It's a lot smoother yarn than the Jojoland Melody I used for Traveling Woman. Both are lovely, just different.

Last night I grabbed some leftover sock yarn -- Socks That Rock Mediumweight in The Cookie Next Door colorway -- and a copy of the Mini Sweater Ornament pattern by Emily and started knitting. Before you know it, I had this completed:

Isn't it cute? Here it is again, being modeled by a Teeny Beeny bear. He looks pretty toasty warm to me!

That's all for now, folks. If you're in the U.S. -- or if you're not, but celebrate any holiday you can -- I leave you with warm thoughts of thanks for visiting here. Hope you and yours are warm, healthy, happy, and well-fed this holiday season!

I think your shawl is the tipping point for me to both do Multnomah and get some malabrigo sock yarn. It looks great (together) :)
