Tasty Tuesdays: Mmh Mmh Mal!

BAM! BAM! BAM!

Yeah I have been dibbling and dabbling in some Malabrigo lately! ;op

That is Purple Mystery, Stonechat, & Polar Morn

I have been in lurve with Stonechat for a while now and finally got my hands on a skein. It is just as pretty in person as I thought! Then I bumped into Polar Morn and was intrigued! That will turn into the Gretel hat..won't that just look lovely in all those cables!!

You know I forgot all about my primary colors and how blue and red make purple!

But I am having a hard time finding Purple in this colorway! LOL
In this color's defense I do recognize a purple base, but it is basically blue to me! Haha! ;op

Over the Easter weekend I had some yarn that came in and Burgundy stole my heart!I KNEW it!! I knew this would be the color I had been searching for awhile! Now that is a CRIMSON color and I lurve it too!

But then I just had to try the new silky Malabrigo! :oD

Oooooooh!! Aaaaaaaaahhh! Not as much yardage (I should have gotten 2 hanks), and a lighter weight but very very nice! This is in Viena and I need to figure out what to do with it. It is in some great fall colors!

Well you know I was winding up some Mal over here! Afterall, it is still Malabrigo March!!

Don't they look like cousins!
Yep their destiny has already been set for them! Haha!

    I love that blue! You really are branching out colour wise! I didn't realise Malabrigo came in such a variety of textures as well as colors!

    Girl, we're going to have to set you up in a 12 step program, if you keep up with this addiction issue of yours! The colours are really lovely ... enjoy!
    Batty said...
    Malabrigo, how pretty! I really want some... it's going to be my reward for knitting up a whole bunch of stash, I think.

    BTW, I haven't forgotten about the explanation of "sitting at his feet" -- just haven't dug up the annotated Bible yet. Since the husband and I consolidated our books, things have been surprisingly hard to find!
