That Knitable Thing

In the words of a child.  As we were rushing out the door one morning a few weeks ago Devan said, “Hey, I like what you’re wearing … that knitable thing.”   Don’t you just love it?!  How well trained is my boy to notice such things.

One Skein Wonder

I finally found a picture to show you of the “knitable” as Devan continues to call it.  It’s the tiny little pink shrug you can see on my shoulders and it’s called One Skein Wonder, designed by Stephanie Japel .  You may know her as Glampyre Knits.  I used a kettle dyed solid Malabrigo in worsted weight that was in my stash.  It’s so phenominally soft.  I love Malabrigo and would definitely work with it again. Stephanie’s pattern was easy to follow and a good example of a strong yet simple design for which she’s so well known.  I knit it about a year and a half ago before our trip to Hawaii.  I didn’t have enough time for a shawl, but felt the need for something hand knit before I left.
