mmmMalabrigo Winter Set--Pics Fixed! Feast on the MMMMmm!
Voila! Finished just in time for a birthday for....ME! With two lovely hanks of Malabrigo Oceanos I've knit:

A scrunchable scarf--it started out as My So Called but I wasn't feeling it. I wish I had a fancier scarf to show off the yarn, but Scrunchable is always a good go-to. It's nice and long, all the better to smooooosh up to my face to bask in the softness.

A pair of Fetching--eh, I don't know why I did this. I knew the cables wouldn't show up, and they don't. And I'm not into fingerless mitts, etc. I don't wear them, they seem pointless to me. But I felt the need to make Fetchin so--oh well, I'll wear them since they're Malabrigo . I gotta say though, not a big fan of the Picot bind-off for this, makes the edges roll up too much.

And finally--my favorite--Calorimetry! I love this, it's ridiculously warm. I altered the pattern, as I gather many did. As written the pattern makes a rather unnecessarily monster-sized headband (and this coming from a girl with a gigantic melon, who can't wear store bought hats). So, I only cast on 84ish stitches, and I only repeated the short-wrap rows 9 times (instead of 15). I'm quite pleased with it!

And oh yes--Calorimetry took me about one hour to knit, start to finish. Such a fun quick knit! I'm really surprised by how much I like it and the fact that I'll probably even wear it.

So...even though I almost never wear gloves, NEVER wear scarves, and NEVER EVER wear headgear--I will absolutely be wearing each of these items tomorrow. If only to dwell in the glory of Malabrigo. (Besides, I think our "high" tomorrow is like 10 degrees).

(This was my first experience knitting with the mmmmM--I want MORE!)
