So, to top off the week, I thought I’d share one more project that I was itching to cast on. If you remember, I shared in a post earlier this fall my must-knits and this was on the list, the Mara shawl by Madelintosh. I have wanted to knit this for ages and finally realized I had yarn in the stash that would work. Thus I cast on without delay (project page here). I must say this pattern is addicting but also stupid easy. The interesting part doesn’t come until the ruffle on the edge but I don’t mind that. My only issue is that I really will have to dig through the Ravelry project pages for Mara to see if anyone has a rough estimate for how much yarn you might need for that edging. I don’t want to come up short but I do want to use up as much yarn as possible. The life of a knitter, yarn chicken forever.
Well, I guess that wraps up this week. I’m still itching to cast something else on and just have to decide. The design bug has bit me again, so perhaps I will actually follow through with a promise I made forever ago. We shall see. Fall is almost over, snow is on the way (which I am stupid excited about, who’s with me?) and knitting is definitely at the forefront.
