My Mystery Stole in the Malabrigo Lace has begun.
I am in love with this yarn. It is amazingly soft and the colour variation is so subtle. I think it is also the perfect weight for this shawl as you can really see the pattern. I managed the first 70 odd rows on the train to and from London (about 4 hours in total). I think this might take me a LONG time. However I loved every minute of it, and as Nic said to me, you get a break on the purl row!
Thanks for all of the lovely comments on my Sockapalooooza socks too - I truly am the luckiest knitter :0)

That will be - is! - beautiful.

I went to Getknitted on Saturday and swapped the Olive Malabrigo I showed you for Verde Adriano, and added 2 skeins so I have 4 - for the Secret of Chrysopolis mystery stole - in German - late Sept. Lovely yarn!
