Because I don't have time to write today, here are some pictures for you instead. :)
Malabrigo worsted in the Loro Barranquero colorway. Destined to become the vest shown on the cover of that magazine.
Malabrigo Silky Merino in Azul Azul. Two skeins = 300 yards. Not sure what it will be yet, probably a lace scarf.
Both the Malabrigo purchases above were made today at All About Yarn, where there's still plenty for the rest of you! Yeah, I work there. Come by on Saturday and visit!
The third installment in the Year of Lace (2009 sign-ups available now). This is a beautiful pattern from Amy Swenson and 100 grams of absolutely to-die-for 2-ply cashmere from Handmaiden (they don't make this anymore, but did this special for the club). It is sooooooo soft!
And finally. . .
My very first hand-spun yarn! It's definitely got some "challenges" that qualify it as "art yarn," but it's mine and I made it with my own two hands on my Lendrum wheel while basking in the glory that is Oregon Flock & Fiber. My next bobbin was a lot more even and I'm sure they will keep getting better. Yeah!
