Okay, I just got a big order of Malabrigo… which I so love. I have knit with it before and I consider it to be one of the best yarns out there….

Which is why I am so upset that it REEKS OF VINEGAR.

Like, it is actually STINKING UP MY CUBICLE.

Mreh.

ETA: Also, I have knit with this colorway before too (verdeazul)… and while I like this, it has MUCH more variation than the other skein did. I mean, I wouldn’t even consider this the same colorway.

planning

Filed under: on deck, Uncategorized, WIPs — risknit @ 2:21 pm

Lots of planning and a little knitting around here is all it’s been. Although I am about to get cracking on a blue sky alpacas cotton sweater in graphite and I think lemongrass. It should be sufficiently hideous!

Other than that, working on a pair of STR socks (jewel of the nile, plain stockinette) and lots of little projects for Dulaan 2007… it has been warm here and I have been travelling so no big projects lately. Plus I’m trying to use up some stash… especially leftovers and stuff I bought from KnitPicks just to try out.

And I just bought two sweaters worth of yarn (one for the boy, yes I know about the curse. So does he, he believes, I don’t.) and one for me… destined to become Central Park from the new KnitScene… Yarn A Go Go inspired me! (See her’s Her version turned out so lovely I just can’t wait for my own.

And a couple sweaters and hats for the wee ones in my life. They need to stay warm too.
