When I finished the Pumpkin Spice beanie I thought there was only one skein of the Malabrigo yarn left but actually had two! It was just enough to make this shawl! On this project you can see a hint of blues and even purples. The yarn is the same name but different dye lots. If the yarn were a solid color it probably wouldn’t work because of the noticeable difference but in this case, I loved it. I actually mixed the 2 skeins using one first then stopping halfway and using the 2nd skein then starting over until I had used it all! There wasn’t going to be any left over yarn on this project…..
