|One made, one to go|
I posted about buying Manos de Uruguay's Maxima when I visited my LYS during its winter blahs sale and how I had some doubt about whether I would ever really knit with this color. Bridget knows my love of Malabrigo and steered me toward Maxima and it was truly hard to resist.
|You wouldn't be able to resist either, could you?|
For these leg warmers, I probably couldn't have picked a better yarn. Its weight is perfect for the rib stitch, and it is incredible smooshy and soft like my beloved Malabrigo. One 16- inch leg warmer with a 48 stitch cast-on took just under 1 skein so I should be able to complete a set well under two cakes. As for the color, peach melba knits up in an evenly variegated pink and orange -- it's bright (but not neon) and perfect for spring.
While I'm not sure I'll add Maxima to my stash again because all the colors are variegated, for small accessories, it's pretty wonderful.
