KniCroBlo Week — Day 7

What a Yarn

There’s one love that we all share: yarn. Blog about a particular yarn you have used in the past or own in your stash, or perhaps one that you covet from afar. If it is a yarn you have used you could show the project that you used it for, perhaps writing a mini ‘review’. Perhaps, instead, you pine for the feel of the almost mythical qiviut? You could explore and research the raw material and manufacturing process if you were feeling investigative.

I know this is a day late, but I had other things going on yesterday, including the final revisions (I hope) on my MSc Report.

So, on to the question at hand …

I adore Malabrigo, I first got my hands on some last summer when it was recommended to me by the staff at my LYS. I am pretty sure it is what restarted my interest in knitting last summer.  I love the single-ply, I love the softness and I loooove the colors.  I have a skein of water green that doesn’t flatter my complexion, but I am itching to make it into something beautiful out of it. For the most part I have used the Worsted weight, but I have also used the lace and bulky weights (which are also awesome!).  I would really like to use the Silk Blend Merino.
