For a while there, I was on a Hitchhiker shawlette kick. They were just so easy to make and looked so cool, especially with the interestingly dyed yarns. Fred asked me if I would make one for his mother. I suggested Malabrigo sock and he chose this gorgeous Lotus colorway.
I cast on a Hitchhiker with the yarn, but I had used a 2.5 mm needle – I was hoping for a more drapey look. This is supposed to be a summer scarf, light and airy. I was also looking for an excuse to start a Trillian, because it just looked so classy. After a few weeks of debating, I frogged the Hitchhiker and cast on the Trillian, this time with a 3.5 mm needle. The results are absolutely gorgeous.
