Oh my goodness at a FO a day I feel like I've run out of things to say! Luckily this one doesn't need much explanation. I suppose it's only fitting that I should end my Fo a Day week with another malabrigo FO, 3 out of 5 this week were all made with malabrigo!
I was very inspired by craftoholic's version - I am such a HUGE fan of grey shrugs that I had another must-cast-on moment and went searching for the same yarn - malabrigo worsted in polar morn. It was sold out everywhere but fellow knit bud Hilary came through for me - her yarn store carried it and she ran down and picked up the last two skeins! Aren't knit buds the greatest? Thanks so much Hilary! =)
This was a fun and easy knit - the brioche stitch is easily memorizable and the way it's designed you only have to change needle sizes to increase and decrease- easy peasy. I did lengthen it overall by about 8 inches so it would hit just past my elbows to be more flattering. You can add the length in any section but I chose the 10.5.
I have to be honest, it turned out a smidge small on me since I'm so tall I have wider shoulders. I haven't decided what to do - if I'm going to give it away or let it marinate.
Details as always on ravelry. That concludes my Fo a Day for 5 days series - I hope you enjoyed it! I feel so much lighter now that I've organized my WIP queue and pending projects for the end of the month. Now to get my next projects I want to start ready to go. Happy Friday and Leap Day all!
