Holden Shawlette

December 27, 2010

Today I have plopped from the bed to the sofa to the chair to the tub. It's so strange when Christmas day has come and gone. All the busy busy doings have been done; made, baked, opened, eaten, sung, whatever. Time for some calm and some sofa time with knitting. I told my husband I was going to do nothing but knit all week long and watch the holiday movies I recorded but didn't get a change to watch my fill of. But he also put me in charge of back to healthy eating in our house. We have had enough sweets and meats for a while. I see veggies are in our future.

I finished this scarf in mid December and think I've wore it every day since. The pattern is the Holden Shawlette by Mindy Wilkes, made with one skein of Malabrigo Sock in Ravelry Red. Pattern is fairly easy and it's a free download. While visiting Costa Mesa last month, I found the yarn at a great shop called Knit Schtick. They have a great selection of Malabrigo and are very nice and friendly.
