Tribute to "Marabrigo"

Pattern: Mara by Madelinetosh.
Material: Malabrigo Merino Worsted (100% merino wool), shade: loro baranquero.

Love the Mara design! Love Malabrigo! Love my Marabrigo!!! When I complete this simple triangular garter stitch shawl with ruffled edge, it didn´t seem to be anything special. But it has quickly become the most favorite autumn/winter accessory of my wardrobe. 

What makes it special? Yarn, colour, simplicity, versatility, softness, warm... It comes with almost everything and suits many different styles: it can be dressed up with a silk dress and high heel boots or dressed down with jeans and flat boots as well, it can be worn over a coat or with a long hoody wool cardigan... It looks awesome paired with a long sleeved T-shirt, skirt and dark tights. In some way, Mara is a fashion chameleon. :-) And... did I meant softness? I mean softness!

The colour is really diffcult to show in the photo. It is mainly burgundy with indigo, powder pink, grey pink, greyish green and greenish grey and golden touches. I´ve never seen a photo of knitted fabric in loro baranquero, which is nice and make the colour justice... sigh.
