Pattern: #2 Reversible Cable-Rib Shawl by Lily M. Chin from Vogue Knitting, Winter 1999/2000. Yarn: Malabrigo Lace in damask rose 130. Needle: US 9.
I originally started this scarf last spring, but after knitting a few feet I got sick-of-scarf-syndrome. I put it aside since I had no deadline, and it sat in hibernation for nearly a year. Randomly one day I was talking to my mom and she mentioned how my aunt liked to wear scarves. Since I’ve never knit her anything I decided this one would make a great gift. I finally pulled it out last month and plowed through it. It’s actually a very easy knit, but the monotony of it nearly did me in. I love how it came out, and it’s super soft. Maybe one of these days when I recover from sick-of-scarf-syndrome I’ll make one for myself.
