Giving all this yarn away has been so much fun. Well, there may possibly have been the occasional teeny tiny twinge when I mail out the oh-so-pretty goodies, but that’s only to be expected. The fun parts far outweigh any such ignoble feelings. I must see if I can do this again some time!
But now, just to end things on a bang, the good folks at Malabrigo were kind enough to send me 3 skeins of Arroyo to give away today. This is the yarn I used for the Ruction cowl and mitts in Rabble Rousers. It was, as always, an absolute delight to work with. It was almost embarrassingly fascinating to see which color would come up next as I was knitting with it. Maybe I’m just easily entertained.
I think most of us know all about Malabrigo and are already properly smitten. Their yarns come in a lovely array of bases, but it’s their phenomenal colors that I’m always drawn to. I swear I can hear them calling me from across a crowded yarn store. I end up standing in front of the Malabrigo display going ‘hmmm, I need that one, and that one, oh and that one over there too.’ It’s a sickness I tell you. I mean look, they got me to buy pink yarn. I don’t generally do pink, but this was just too pretty to resist. I was overcome by the colors.
And now, so that some of you can be overcome too, I’ve got 3 skeins of Arroyo (each skein will make both the cowl and the mitts). I’m going to send each skein off to a different lucky reader. If you think one of them might like to come live with you, just leave a comment telling me about your experience with Malabrigo (something you’ve knit, yarn you’ve bought, yarn you’ve just ogled in the store, or even let me know you’ve not yet been properly introduced). I’ll leave comments open until Friday night and then come back and announce winners early next week.
