Finished knitting and blocking my Morlynn Shawl on February 12th and am so happy with how it turned out. The handspun merino wool I used is incredibly soft and bouncy. I love using handspun for shawls. Originally, I had planned on using some Malabrigo from my stash but I just couldn’t resist using up my handspun for a really fun project.
I knit the medium version of the shawl and was very happy with the finished size. Medium makes a very good size shawl and is perfect for keeping cozy on these cooler winter day.
My biggest love with this shawl pattern is the fun leaf border. I just love how these little leaves decorate the edge! I would love to knit this shawl again in a beautiful reddish rust color.
I also wanted to wish you all a happy Valentines Day today. We have a fun family dinner of Mama-style fish and chips underway and can’t wait to dig in. I do the fresh haddock up in my super secret cracker crumb crust and fry it up in a little olive oil. The “chips” are oven baked potato wedges with a tiny sprinkling of parmesan cheese. It is a very healthy and delicious version of the classic fish and chips that we all love.
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day!
