For my FLS!
I ended up going with something that I didn't even consider. It's almost like Aporto, but it's more green than Aporto - it's almost like the reverse. Here check out Lake Chelan Heather. Because it's kind of neat, leave the window for that open and do a side by side comparison of Aporto. Same colors - different amounts of each.
I'm actually pretty surprised at my choice! I really thought I would go for a purple, but, hey, a girl only lives once, right?
Check this out! I made it for my girl Toby over the weekend. The grafting looks crazy in the picture, but honestly, once you put it on, you could never tell. A non-knitter would never know. Toby is a non knitter and when I pointed it out to her, she couldn't see what I was talking about. Yay.It was a really quick knit and used up less than a skein of Malabrigo. I would estimate you could do it with 2/3 of a skein. The pattern is the Crofter's Cowl and it's free on Ravelry.
Yes, mom, I'm continuing to work on your socks. I promise.
