fresh off the needles is Color Affection

This Veera Valimaki design is a very cool, geometric pattern with unlimited color combinations!
Seemed like I raced thru this one and found it hard to believe how quickly this knit up even with the 400 plus stitch rows toward the end.  Maybe it was all that soothing and relaxing Garter stitch. I just wanted to keep knitting and knitting even while reading on my Nook Color! 
 Once blocked this is a long crescent shape shawl that will be worn not only as a shawl but as a scarf or kerchief....that's just how light and airy this piece is knit with Malabrigo. 

 I was nervous about my color choice during the process but now that its finished and blocked I find it to be nice mated with a gray or white sweater.
 With all these positives you know I will be casting on for my second Color Affection....(guess you could see that one coming) AND here is my MadelinetoshTosh Merino Light for #2!!!
I have only one sleeve to knit on this sweater and the Cast On Will Begin on my Pink Affection!

What? You are taking a break from your linen stitch scarfs? hahaha.
This shawl is beautiful and I love your photographs. I have a similar shawl pattern from Veera and glad to know it goes fast and is fun to make.
