I Made A Wrap!

Almina wrap 
A couple of weeks ago the Almina shawl pattern was released.  As soon as I saw it, I bought it and by the time I went to bed that evening, I had sorted my skeins and wound them.  I just loved this design - the pattern, the size, the texture, the worsted weight yarn - loved it.

I used almost four skeins of Malabrigo Rios in Aguas (which is why the skeins had to be sorted - there are more blue greens in the first skeins) and the project practically fell off the needles.  To block it I just steamed it with my iron and it's about 72 inches across the long side.  I know I could make it bigger if I throw it in the wash (superwash will relax and grow), but I haven't committed to that yet.  I might wear it a time or two and then decide.

It was a fun, fast knit and I'm really happy with the finished wrap!

That looks beautiful. The pattern of the shawl and the yarn color. I love Lisa's designs and have knitted two shawls already.
