Malabrigo.......



Evil Temptress Suzanne was bragging about the Malabrigo sock yarn and of course being the good follower that I am had to give it a try myself!


O.M.G. This has GOT to be THE softest sock yarn I have EVER touched!!!! I knit my sister a pair of Alpaca socks last year and I do believe this is softer!!!


I can't WAIT to get started on a pair of socks!!


BUT.........imagine my surprise when I received a LARGE box in the mail from The Loopy Ewe!!! Turns out......I'm now a LOOPY GROUPIE!!!! WOO HOO!!!!



Inside was the Loopy Ewe tote bag,


BEAUTIFUL sock pattern, chocolate kisses, AND....Araucania sock yarn!!!

The picture doesn't do the sock yarn justice....it is deep brown/turquoise.

My sister LOVES this Vera Bradley color/pattern and this sock yarn looks as if it were dyed to match.....so...I'm thinking a pair of socks for my sis are in order!!


On My Needles: Socks X several, Fuzzy Feet
Off My Needles: One pair of Fuzzy Feet, hat for my nephew, baby gift.
ABOUT to be on my needles: Fuzzy Feet (third and final pair for now), cap and scarf set for nephew, 3 Ladies scarves for Christmas gifts, socks for my sister, and hopefully that is IT for Christmas knitting!!!

Yes, that Suzanne IS an enabler, isn't she!?! I still like her, though. :o)

Nice score!
