FO alert: Brickless for Stash

St. Petersburg, FL recently got a new yarn shop Stash - A place for Yarn!  It's so very exciting because we haven't had an LYS for a while now.  The closest yarn shops were across bridges or at least a 30-45 min drive.  This new yarn store is only 10-15 mins from both my work and home...can't really beat that! 

Kristin, the shop owner, asked me to knit a sample for the shop as she was preparing to open.  I was more than eager to step up to the challenge.  She handed me this beautiful skein of Malabrigo Sock in the archangel colorway.  I had never used Malabrigo sock but have wanted to for sometime.  Picking the pattern was not hard as I have been wanting to knit a Martina Behm pattern and the sock yarn screamed that it needed to be a Brickless. So here it is all set up in the shop and looking so beautiful! 
Project details
Pattern: Brickless by Martina Behm
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Sock colorway Archangel
Cast on: July 1, 2014
Finished: July 14, 2014
Notes: The yarn knit up so nicely and the pattern is so well written.  I had several long drives when we went out of town for a weekend and some low key evening knitting time so this knit up very quickly.  Since it's a shop sample, I don't get to keep it so another one of these will be on my needles soon.

If you find yourself visiting St. Pete, FL anytime soon, check out our new LYS Stash - A place for yarn downtown and check this beauty out for yourself.  Let her know Barknknit sent you!

Happy Knitting!

  2. Stunning!! I'm not knitting nearly enough and the baby blanket is in danger of not being finished for Charlie's arrival next week. Yikes!
