mmmm....malabrigo.....

Wednesday....and still warm....and I'm still having to figure out what to wear.....

I'm one of those people who doesn't like shopping for clothes....

if I find something that fits and looks half way decent I buy it in three colors....

so that should tell you that this being the third day of the work week....I'm wearing the last color.

let's hope for a huge cool down on Thursday and Friday....

Last night I ripped out another project....this yarn is a favorite of mine and the original hat was not doing justice to the yarn....so a quick rip job and it's back on the needles today.
this will be this weeks
lunch time
in the car
knitting project
you'll be seeing it soon...
It's Malabrigo - a wonderful kettle dyed merino wool...if you haven't tried this yarn I highly recommend it.
camera shot....
terrible camera shot...!!!
check out the website
this doesn't come close to
how lovely the colors are
It's available on the internet...available in beautiful colors....good yardage.....and affordable..
pert near perfect for just about anything.....let me know if you have a favorite yarn..
here's the place to make your wish list.....www.malabrigoyarn.com

this will be a future slouchy....I'm thinking positive today that the weather will cool down and I'll have something other than Monday's color to wear on Thursday.....

I bought this yarn while visiting last weekend in the Chicago area.....it's going to be socks for Mom for Christmas....although...I have to tell you I'm wondering if the softness of this alpaca on hardwood floors will send her slip sliding and flying across the room.
That would make it a memorable Christmas gift for all the wrong reasons.
I know she'll like the colors - I'll tell her she just can't let them touch the ground...
t.v. watching socks....
I know a lil'l puppy that will be very interested in her feet up on the bed with these covering her toes.


Until the weather cools...I'm going to walk down memory lane and the Fall lined streets of the Midwest
Have a great day...see you soon Friends.

Last night at my Knitting Class, I was feeling up that same brand of Alpaca yarn!
How funny:)
Love the pumpkins and the colors of all your fibers!
Have a great day!

I am tired of this California weather too! Even though it never really gets cold here, I am looking forward to wearing scarves and cardigans.

I love your pumpkin patch photo and the yarn looks lovely. I never figured you for a ripper-outer. ;)

So I'm not the only one who buys clothes in different colours when they fit :)
Lovely yarns, I like it when they're multi coloured!
