At Christmas, I got all my favorite things including these terrific additions to my yarn stash and knitting library.
|Quick Knits, Malabrigo Worsted, and Hand Salve|
Mark and Miranda went to our LYS (yes, I've taught them well) and picked out two gorgeous hanks of Malabrigo worsted wool. The skein on the left is a purple mix and the one on the right is bluey-green. What I love about getting yarn as a present is the surprise in what was selected. Miranda knows how much I love Malabrigo but what surprised me were the colors she chose. She knows that my favorite color is green but for reasons I can't explain, I never buy yarn in green or wear anything in this shade. I'm thrilled to have these two new colors to play with.
Over at Ravelry, I'll be participting in Mal March as part of the Malabrigo Junkies group. This is an amazing group of talented and enthusiastic knitters who adore Malabrigo and during the month of March, we'll be casting on all sorts of projects in every variety of Malabrigo you can imagine. So, from this new book that I got for Christmas, I'm planning to cast on the Quincy Hat in one of these new skeins.

Perhaps you, too, are taking advantage of this extra day in the calendar for yarny goodness? I love to hear what you're up to.
