Marilinda

I'm waiting to start a super secret project, so in the meantime I decided to work on my WIP's rather than start my Monkey Kaw Kaws.


Pattern: Marilinda by Cookie A originally for Scout's Indie Swag club
Yarn: Scout's Swag BFL in Kizkalesi - the yarn that came with the club pattern
Needles: Knit Picks Harmony 2.25 mm (size 1)
pattern size: large because my gauge was smaller at 9 spi


I also finished my "gauge scarf" from Camp Crows Feet. It essentially reinforced the fact that I do not like to knit medium weight STR on size 0 (2.00 mm) needles.


And that's it for now. I'm also working on my Grace front and intermittently on Monkey1's Lindy Hop sleeve (the only WIP right now that isn't teal.) We'll see if I get the Grace front done before my super secret project can commence.

The Marilinda sock looks great! Good for you for trying to stay on track and not starting the Monkey kaw Kaw!

Love the gauge scarf....is it cute to wear??!! Where's the model shot?

Happy Mother's Day!

Oooh, pretty sock! I know that's not the most eloquent comment, but pretty lace socks just do something to my brain. It's so pretty.

STR medium on 0's would wear like iron!

Pretty sock! I've been wondering what to make with that skein. You hit the nail on the head.

I knew it would be dangerous to come over here; I just bought the Marilinda pattern after seeing yours. I think I'll knit my red Wollmeise in it.
