Lets Talk About Yarn for a While
Have you tried Malabrigo Lace yet? No? Why not?
This yarn is everything you would expect it to be. The amazing Malabrigo colors, the incredible Malabrigo softness. It blooms as you knit with it. With a price under $10 for 470 yards you can afford to make epic shawls.
I bought mine at Modern Yarn. I all but dumped the bin of scrumptiousness over my head when I discovered it shortly after walking into the store on Thursday. I kept making up my mind on color and changing it again because the colors were all so alluring. In the end I settled on Garnet. It's a good Project Spectrum choice.
I've chosen to make Icarus because the pattern shows off the color so well.
Don't worry about my Spun Stitches shawl. It is seeing some knitting action too. I've never, never been a monogamous knitter.
On a completely unrelated note, I've finally gotten around to installing Photoshop. I immediately made a new banner for this blog. (The old one was pretty weak.) The customized banner seems to be showing up in Explorer and Safari. But I'm a Firefox user, and for some reason the old banner still shows on Firefox. Any Typepad users or techy gurus have any idea why?
Now go out and buy some Malabrigo lace. And if you go to Modern Yarns to buy it, save some for me. I'm going back for seconds.
