Well, my stash grew this week. (Let’s be real – it pretty much grows every week.) But whenever Malabrigo comes in, it seems to grow a bit more during those weeks. And that’s what we have this week for you – lots of beautiful Malabrigo.
Just added in:
Malabrigo Rios – Why am I taking two for me … and another for me? It’s the colors! Malabrigo just does color SO well. And Rios (worsted, superwash) is appropriate for everything from sweaters to cowls to hats to shawls. So I’m taking three. Or more.
I have two favorite projects with Rios so far. My Brioche Cowl and my Squish Shawl. Can you tell that Teal Feather is one of my favorite Malabrigo Colors?
Here’s a beautiful one skein project. And aren’t these baby socks cute? That’s a third of a skein project. 🙂
Malabrigo Dos Tierras – Three new colors just in time for the April Dos Tierras Knit a Long! Check out Alice, Fairy Tale, and Neverland. All three are meant to go together for the Odyssey Shawl by Joji Locatelli. Need more three-color ideas? Here are some other color options that we loved. I used Polar Morn, Parist Night and Teal Feather for my Odyssey.
To participate in the KAL, just order your three colors and jump in on April 1. We look forward to seeing what you do!
Malabrigo Susurro – This might be the perfect summer yarn for sweaters and tank tops. The base is 50% silk, 25% linen and 25% merino wool. Light and airy and beautiful.
Malabrigo Caprino – This new cashmere blend is luscious. And knits up beautifully. (Here is my Escarpment Cowl – takes 2 skeins).
Malabrigo Rasta – When I am freezing cold and leaving Loopy late at night, I always reach for my Rasta Mittens. They are the warmest ever, and I probably need a hat to go with them!
Malabrigo Arroyo – The little sister to Rios (this one a sport weight superwash). Gorgeous colors, a little lighter weight.
We’ve also added in Yarn Bento Bags. Pop a yarn cake into a Bento and it keeps your yarn clean and sitting in one place as you knit. You can add your Yarn Bentos right into your regular project bags and be assured that your scissors or stitch markers or cable needles won’t poke into your yarn and get it tangled up or damaged.
And we have the cutest project bag tags, don’t you think? (We might be biased. But who wouldn’t want Loopy-the-sock-wearing-sheep on their project bag?)
Our last Yarn Update included:
The Uncommon Thread Lush Worsted, Merino DK, Posh Fingering and Everyday Singles, our March Dream in Color Exclusive (Hocus Crocus) and needle re-stocks in ChiaoGoo and Knitter’s Pride.
What I’m All Into This Week
1. This Notions Flip Case is one of my favorite things to keep in project bags. There is room for a variety of notions, stitchmarkers, darning and cable needles, and needle stoppers. No matter what project I’m working on, I have the accessories that I need.
2. Happy Spring Colors. I pulled these skeins of Malabrigo Rios Fucsia for a homepage shot today, and have had them sitting on my desk ever since. They read “spring” to me, and I am ready for spring!
3. Lightweight earrings from As You Wish by Kirstin. My friend’s daughter is making the cutest earrings (already featured on Buzzfeed!) and I love them. You might, too! (Spring Flingers – remember when Kirstin made us the best ever cake balls for Fling back in the day? I miss those.)
What I’m working On:
Finishing up Belmina (out of Walcot Opus) this week, and will be on to Three (out of Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Joy). What are you working on?
Thanks for your time. We love connecting with you each week! For more connection, join our Facebook Knitting Circle, and/or our Ravelry Loopy Groupies. It’s always fun to chat!
Now – can we send you a skein or two this week for a new spring project?
