Maaema in Yellow

In my last blog post I showed you the little yellow Maaema knit in Merino Lambswool Angora. One skein of Merino Lambswool Angora is just over half the yarn of the original Maaema Scarf that I designed and knit in silk. As I said, I thought it’d be interesting to see how the pattern knit up in a slightly heavier yarn and a smaller skein. Sometimes you want a long skinny scarf, sometimes you don’t – and yes the Mounds/Almond Joy jingle will be playing in my head for the next hour.

My Maaema in Yellow measured 36 inches/91centimeters at blocking. I’m crazy about it! Chris happened to have recently made me a small wooden shawl brooch and pin that go nicely with it.

We took a few photos this morning.

I wore it out to the new sunflower field to inspect the seedlings that are emerging.

Then I wandered over to the the garden gate and took in some sun.

Martha thought this was all quite interesting and followed along.  While taking photos I always worry about sucking in my gut and whether my hair looks goofy. Martha has actually been in a movie so she knows more about holding a pose and looking natural than I will ever know.

Now and then she acts like she has something important to share.

This time she may have just wanted a stick to be thrown to her.

  1. Martha, the terrible, is adorable! You look fabulous, Denise, and YOU WERE RIGHT!….Maaema looks wonderful in yellow!
    How do you have the time to do it all?

  2. It's beautiful in yellow. I've just started making it in a dark raspberry colored angora that I had in my stash. I'm so happy with how it's coming alone. I will post photos on my blog and on ravelry just as soon as I make them…right now I'm having too much fun knitting to be bothered with photographing! thank you for this great pattern.
