I seem to have a never-ending supply of Malabrigo sock yarn in Eggplant. So far I’ve made Hömin and Simmer Dim shawls with my stash and I think I still have enough left for one more project!
This is Ysolda Teague’s Damson from Whimsical Little Knits 2 – I love the scalloped shape and simple lace pattern. It also offers a fair amount of garter stitch goodness.
I can’t help but think of the poor Damson plum tree at my parents’ place in BC when I think of this pattern. This black bear may look innocent but he not only devoured all the plums on the tree but snapped the trunk and killed it before taking a nice long nap. My dad has since planted a replacement Damson… likely more appealing to the bears than the last!
