Malabrigo yarn and Laminaria shawl

I ordered yarn online for the first time. Always hesitated because I thought I had to feel the yarn first. But then I couldn’t get any lace yarn locally, so I searched online and finally ordered malabrigo lace yarn. For the Laminaria shawl in a green called lettuce and then I couldn’t help but also get some i a colour called cognac.

This yarn is so incredably soft, I could touch it all the time… Even Sweetheart often touches my WIP just to say “ this is SO soft”.
and here it is: the beginning of the Laminaria shawl. Love to knit it so far.

  4. excuse me while I wipe the drool off your malabrigo :)

    I'm off to look up that pattern, I might have to add that to MY list :)

  5. I love this shade of green! The shawl is on my list too. It's lovely.

  6. Thanks for your comment on my blog a couple of weeks ago. I haven't even bothered to look at my blog in so long, so I hadn't noticed I had any new comments.

    We're all fine. I've just been busy doing so many other things (some sewing, some very uninteresting knitting and I'm finally getting to really organizing our house properly). I just haven't been in the mood to blog about any of it. I may throw some pictures of the closet I built all by myself on there for fun. We'll just have to see what I'm in the mood for.

    Thanks for popping by.
