In addition to yesterday's socks, I've also finished my Cameo shawl! This was a fun, quick project to knit. It was also pretty great for autopilot knitting, which was nice, since the socks were not. I used Malabrigo Mechita in Musas and Sandbank. I've used Mechita for several things before and it's super soft and nice to knit with. It's a singles yarn, kind of like Madelinetosh's Tosh Merino Light or Dream in Color's Jilly, but I think Mechita is a little bit fatter than the other two and there are also more thick and thin parts in Mechita. TML and Jilly are more of a consistent size. There isn't a huge range of thick and thin in Mechita, the thinnest places are about the same diameter as TML and the thick places are more just puffy spots that compress into the knitting stitches, but the Mechita isn't quite as consistently spun. I do love knitting with it, and I've fallen in love with Malabrigo's colors, but I probably won't mix Mechita with TML and Jilly. (I do think you could easily mix TML and Jilly in the same project.)
Here's a close up so you can see what's going in the darkness of the Musas colorway. This shawl has a definite fall or winter feel to it, but even in the dark color that is Musas there are is a bunch going on.
Have a great weekend! I'm going to start a new pink cardigan!
