This weekend was all about yarn. I got about a bushel in the mail from various sources. Some are secret, but I think I can tell you about the stuff that came from Malabrigo.
The first yarn I'd like to tell you about is the lovely Aquarella, a single ply super bulky wool with 10 "water colored" combinations. I got the "Indy" colorway, described as "brownish golden yellow, greens, wet blues and violets." It's absolutely gorgeous. I asked for two hanks, and as promised, the colors are very different on each.
The project I have in mind for them is perfect because it requires the knitter to use both at once. That's all I'll say about it for now, but I'm so excited about it I won't be at all surprised if I find myself naughtily swatching away at it, ignoring my earlier deadlines.
For one thing, this yarn is "thick and thin" which I love and rarely get a chance to work with these days. For another thing, the colors. And the softness, warmth, and inherent design excitement. And did I mention the colors?
Okay, look, I got carried away and will have to save the other Malabrigo lovelies for tomorrow. Until then . . .
