Love, thy name is Malabrigo Lace...

After my first fondling of this yarn at last week's SnB, I was in love. Bells had been using it for her Pi, and i was in heaven. Its comparable to stroking baby skin. Seriously. So, I got me some. It only took a week from the States. Upon hearing that Kuka was using it for her lace ribbon scarf I got some fingering weight in the most bedazzling colour.

And it is as soft as I remembered it. Lily's rather attached too. Can't wait to cast on for that...

Also got a thicker one which within an hour of getting it in my hot little hands I had yarn caked, and cast on for the Beech Wood cowl (inspired by Avalonne's beauty in Smoothie). Man alive its beautiful.

Was going to do the appropriate links, but Mr Man is up so i'll get back to them later...

I'm so glad you got some Malabrigo! You know there's an Aussie shop for it though, don't you? Yarnandkisses.com I think - just in case there is a "next time". LOL

ditto to what Michelle said - Get it locally!

So glad you got the love bug. It's fabulous isn't it? Adore the colours you chose.

I did try Yarn and Kisses but they didn't have very much stock when I checked - like only one colour in the lace weight... and only four in the worsted. And like any new addict I needed it NOW!

Kuka said...

Gorgeous colours!!!
Can't wait to squeeze the worsted too!

Oh you lucky lover. I can't bring myself to use my malabrigo yet. I've got it on display on the chest of drawers in the bedroom. Seriously.

My God, your beech wood is going to be so soft and beautiful!

That malabrigo's almost enough for me to think about breaking my yarn diet...
