Sick Day WIP: Lupine


I'm home with a cold today, so I've been working on this little shawlette design I started a while back. It's actually the second version of it - the first is already finished, and just needs blocking, photography, and an official write-up! I knit the first in Malabrigo Mechita, a super squishy single-ply that has a slightly hazier, softer texture than its distant cousin, Tosh Merino Light. Mechita was an absolute dream to work with, and has earned a spot on my list of recent favorite yarns.

This second version is being knit up in a skein of Evil Genius Dye Lab M1S from my stash, in the colorway Selena. I'm enjoying the combination of gentle tonal color changes and the simple repetition of the pattern, which has kept me happy while I watch documentaries and drink tons of water and tea in bed.

Happy Wednesday, friends - I'm off to nap!
