Shopping downtown... parked near the yarn shop... walking right by it...may as well go in, although I don't need a thing. It's just so fun to poke around and see the new yarns and displays. You understand.
Oh look, a Brickless Scarf is displayed on this manikin. I knit one a few months ago and vowed to knit another. . . sometime. The yarn on this sample is a very smooth heathered-grey, and it shows off the stitch pattern beautifully. Oh, it's made out of Malabrigo? Yeah, one of my favorites, for sure. Yes, I see you have a variety of pretty new colors in Malabrigo. I love this yarn. What? You have a brand new yarn? Road to China by The Fibre Company? It looks so soft. It's made of what? 65% Baby Alpaca, 10% Cashmere, 10% Camel, 15% Silk. Hmmm... let me just feel th........oh, it's like ... "butta".. . really!! Girls, you've got to check it out.
Wouldn't a Brickless Scarf be FABULOUS knit with this stuff????
Truthfully...I hemmed and hawed ... almost talked myself out of it. But I caved. Bought 2 skeins... and I might even (gasp) start a 3rd project soon! It's in good hands till I get to it...
