It took me almost 10 months to land on the perfect project for the yarn my sister picked out for her birthday present last year. And then it took me a week to knit up this little shawlette. Here it is, blocked.
The pattern is Maluka; the yarn is Creamy Flame by Kollage Yarns. It's a crazy yarn: 80% milk protein, and 20% cotton. That's some weird science, people! Find my Rav notes here.
I have quite a bit of a skein left. Here's a round up of some patterns that use a small amount of fingering-weight yarn, perfect for using up sock yarn scraps. (Each photo comes from the site linked beneath it.)
Twin Leaf Wristlets (scroll down to find the pattern)
Other Funky-doo, Gotta-Knit-'Em Accessories
Egg Sox (just in time for Easter!)
What do you with partial skeins of fingering weight yarn?
