malabrigo cloud

I’ve been sort of so-so the last few days, some general life concerns have been looming over me like dark clouds. Not to be defeated, though, I’ve been knitting my own cloud – a much brighter one!

What better material to knit a cloud than Malabrigo?

No storms here. Just gentle curves formed by the slight movements of the winds.

I’ll take this kind of cloud any day!

The thing has been flying off my needles, I think it’s going ten times faster than I expected it to! It’s basically just a lot of stockinette, with a cable row inserted here and there, so it’s perfect mindless speedy take-along-everywhere knitting. And being made out of Malabrigo, it’s quite difficult to put down. I think it’s only a matter of days before I have my cloud cowl to wear with me everywhere!

It’s actually folded here, so it’s about twice as long at the moment! I’m planning to make it long enough to wrap around my neck twice. (In other technical notes, the holes will be dealt with, I have a plan for that.)

Now, if you’ve just read my previous post, you might be thinking that I’ve been knitting very fast indeed (and possibly not sleeping) – but don’t fret, the photo I posted on Wednesday had been taken a few days earlier. It’s not that fast! :)

And if you feel over-bombarded with photos, sorry, I’m just loving this thing and all its different angles so much! And the weather’s been warm and sunny, allowing me to stay out a bit longer while taking my photos. Here’s a little photo-session out-take, just for fun… :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of white fluffy clouds! :)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. That’s a beautiful cloud. Yesterday in the supermarket I was standing behind someone who had a hat on with cables like that and I just *knew* I had to knit one. This is my confirmation that I am right!! May the power of Malabrigo disperse your other clouds, too.

  2. I’m making the same cowl!!! Mine is in Manos Maxima which is every bit as lovely as Malabrigo, IMO. Yours is so beautiful – hope you get a chance to wear it. I’m doubtful I’ll have a chance before next year, unfortunately. Happy, happy knitting on this one!

    • yup, it’s getting more springlike here as well, but I wear my scarves and shawls long into spring usually, so i should be ok :) how cool that we’re making the same thing!

  3. Seriously, the world needs to get on board with “reach through computer and squish” technology. Because I want to *squoosh* all the pretty knits!

  4. Predivno!! Gorgeous!!!
    I made a cowl from this pattern and I love it!!! I plan on making the hat, too.
    I wish I had Malabrigo!!! I am searching places to buy from internet at the moment!

    • Thank you! Malabrigo is heaven, and I can testify that it wears very well – I’ve made two hats out of it and they are very sturdy, and I haven’t noticed any pilling!
