Meeting!

Isn't this the yummiest yarn you ever did see? The leader of our pack...wants to turn me into a Malabrigo junkie!:) She's the sweetest lil' lady! The colors are so dramatic and striking...just love this stuff. I petted it all night and snuggled with it! Thanks Darcy you're the greatest and we have cookies tooo!:) Had a blast at our meeting....Darcy brought her clapotis, Dolores knitted on her clap :), Susan learned how to do magic loop from Robin who's doing two socks on magic loop method, Jackie was working on a dishcloth, and yours truly did two rows on my shawl and messed up my sock while I was there! When I got home I figured out I was knitting backwards on my sock! Duh, ribbit, ribbit...guess that what happens when ya talk to much! Naw, just need to take a project thats a no brainer!:) We had such a great time and so much laughing! We also had a wonderful show and tell time! Susan had made some really cool wrist warmers and an adorable baby bunting that looks like a tuxedo. Robin brought an awesome scarf/wrap kit she bought at Stitches...looks very hard...lots of concentrating...not a project for meeting times!:) Jackie had a bright malabrigo scarf she'd made...love that malabrigo! Darcy had a beautiful, silk, clapotis scarf she was sporting. Can't wait to see what everyone brings to share at the next meeting! What a great, light hearted group!

I wish the Malabrigo loved me back! LOL! It's itching my fingers like crazy (electric zings it feels like) but I'm determined to finish the hat I started someday!

I think I have that colorway too! Isn't it gorgeous! There's a reddish burgundy that I love but never got, now I guess I better not since I'm having these problems.

Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Malabrigo if your not sensitive to wool is buttery soft sadly some are allergic to it.Iam not sensitive to wool and so I have knit the foilage hat with it and Caloimetry and I plan on knitting the Easy Flame Scarf with it also.Hugs Darcy
