Finished Project–“Common Bean” Shawlette

common bean 2I finished this scarf/shawlette last week using yarn I picked up while we were in California earlier this summer. Despite the fact that the temperature is still hovering right around the dark side of hell, the fall knitting bug has hit me in full force. I keep my current project next to my laptop, and barter with myself–For every half hour I stay on task with my current article, I get to take a five minute break and knit a row.

common beanI already have a stack of patterns I’m just itching to get to, as well as fall decorating and baking and all of the other things I want to be doing. But alas, until I catch up on work, I’m stuck daydreaming about cooler weather, rainy days, and expanding my yarn budget.

Pattern: Common Bean by Caitlin French. It’s free on Ravelry.

Yarn: Malabrigo Mecha in the Arco Iris colorway. This yarn claims to be bulky but I honestly think it falls more toward the Aran side.

Needles: Size 10

Finishing: Wet blocked and pinned with a fair amount of aggression.
