I'm in love!

I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love with a beautiful yarn! Did you guess? I LOVE this yarn. It's Malabrigo selecction privada and its soft, fun to knit with and I really like the colors. I bought this awhile ago at the yarn store in Half Moon Bay and have decided to make the Wave Scarf which is a free pattern from Knit Picks. It's really a cross between a scarf and a shawl as it's a very wide scarf but not wide enough to truly be a wrap. It looks like it is going to be very yummy to wear. There is a 24 stitch cable which is quite large and makes it pucker a bit. I still haven't decided if I like that or not. If I make it again I might consider a 16 or 20 stitch cable instead but it is pretty cool as it gets bigger. I can't wait to wear this when I finish.

Beautiful yarn! And a scarf/shawl would be so much better suited for oh... I don't know... a Midwest climate than your climate. Just a thought...

I don't think I've seen that yarn yet. I did see the new Malabrigo wool/silk yarn the other day, and it was all I could do not to scoop it all up and crash my credit card. Next week being Stitches, though...

I love the way those colors look. I can't wait to see the whole thing. I think I'll have to look at the pattern.
