I'm detecting a new trend.
Whatever I knit with at the moment is the best yarn in the world.
First it was Koigu. I was sure I'd never want to knit anything else again.
Then I picked up some Cashmerino Chunky for my hat - SO SOFT I thought "I should make everything in this"
Then it was the 127 print - so rich and squishy. And the colors - OMG.. the colors.
Today's love affair? Malabrigo
Oh.. My... So Soft but yet so sturdy
Feels like alpaca but holds shape like lambs wool
I could eat this stuff, I really could.
I picked up two balls of Malabrigo -
one in cypress (a delicious teal color- see it here)
one in black forest (a smokey taupe, see it here)
I tried to photograph them but they just wouldn't photograph so the links above give some idea of the beautiful colors.
I'm using it to make a brick lengthwise scarf that looks sort of woven (a house pattern from Knit NY that I've been ogling for months)
I leave you with the first of two mittens I'm making from the delicious and yummy 127 Print
I can't wait to finish the second.
