Oh, how sweet is the wait for something so delicious and squishy soft.
Just in time for the mid-winter lull, when you need new inspiration and a new project to get you through the cold and wet winter days….. Just when you thought you had done enough knitting for the season…. and just when your eye wandered off to some spring time crafting ideas….. Just when you started thinking about your spring wardrobe, lighter layers and breezy cottons….
Winter Solstice may be over, and the days may be getting just a tiny bit shorter. But it is still so cold and the wind so biting. And we still have many weeks of happy, cosy winter knitting left. And personally, I still want to wrap my kids in layers of wool before they head out to play.
So, therefor I am wetting your appetite for more yarn goodness to come. I have been tracking the journey of some parcels that are making their way across the seas. A shipment l full of Malabrigo Yarns are making their way up and are expected at my doorstep on Monday! Oh, I can hardly wait!
Some colourful skeins of supersoft Malabrigo Chunky and Rios will be filling our shelves in the coming days. Chunky is the equivalent of about 12ply o merino wool with a gauge of about 14 sts on 4 inches. We are getting a lovely selection of colours, ranging from vibrant red, deep purple, yellows and greens.
Malabrigo is one of the most popular yarns on Ravelry, so you are sure to find just the perfect project for you. Browsing my favourite patterns site late at night, I have found some patterns that would look great in Malabrigo Chunky.
In the next couple of weeks I will also be adding some stunning Road to China Yarn. Road to China is a wonderful luxurious yarn composed of Baby Alpaca, Silk, Camel and Cashmere. If that alone does not make you want to dig your needles in a couple of skeins, then the colour range will. The colours are just so vibrant and deep. We are expecting Citrine, Peridot, Sapphire, Blue Tourmaline, Dark Amethyst and Riverstone. As well as Road to China, I have also ordered some Organic Yarn from the Fibre Company that is equally stunning to work with. You won’t be disappointed by the range…
There are a few new arrivals in the next couple of weeks (and some not of the yarn variety), but I will leave you with these news in the meantime….
I am off to the Bendigo Wool Show (of course) tomorrow so I will tell you all about it. I am very exited to meet some lovely Alpacas and Merino Wool in their natural habitat….
