Finished, Completely This Time!

Here is my finished and blocked Seashore Pullover!  Isn’t it amazing what a difference blocking makes?  The yarn is Malabrigo Mechita in Natural and English Rose.  I used the same striping pattern I’ve used before (a couple of years ago on my Tea With Jam and Bread pullover):  1 round pink, 9 rounds cream, 2 rounds pink, 8 rounds cream, 3 rounds pink, 7 rounds cream…until you get to 9 rounds pink, 1 round cream.  It’s an easy way to blend from one color to another and all you have to do is count.
I used some cream pearl buttons I found in my button stash.  I’m pretty sure these came from my grandmother’s button stash because they have slight imperfections and you can see tool marks if you look closely.  The machine produced buttons of today don’t usually have this kind of human evidence.
Once again, I was captivated by the range of pinks in this yarn.  I think that’s what I love about Malabrigo yarns.  The bases are great, but the dyeing is just amazing.  Yes, the English Rose yarn is pink, but it’s so much more than just a single pink - it’s all the pinks.  The Aguas color does the same thing in the range of medium to dark greens.  I don’t think I’ve gotten English Rose completely out of my system yet, but maybe next time I knit with it, I’ll use a different base!

Until then, I started a new sweater last night.  I’ll show it to you next week.  Have a great weekend!

Your sweater is absolutely gorgeous. After seeing your projects with English Rose, I ordered some from TLE for this fall's Loopy Academy. I can't wait to get my hands on it. Thanks for including Max and Logan in your posts. I love their guest posts.

Lovely, lovely, lovely! I'm not much of a pink person, but I like the rose-tones. I bet that will look smashing over jeans.
