And what a week! Today's post is the final post of Knit & Crochet Blog Week and I have to admit that I am glad it is so. Blogging every day is not as easy as it looks, especially trying to fit in a family and husband and some actual knitting at the same time! But I am so glad that I have made the effort and definitely think that I am inspired to keep challenging myself and blogging on a variety of topics each week (or fortnight!).
To wrap it up here are a couple of yummy yarn's in my stash that I am just itching to use...
Malabrigo's Silky Merino in Lettuce colourway from Tangled Yarns. I've raved about my love of Malabrigo Yarns and this yarn especially before so I won't bore you again. But let me just say that I LOVE it and if you haven't tried Malabrigo yet you are missing out - really! I don't want to knit with anything else at the moment. If you live in Australia and are finding it hard to come by, visit the Tangled Yarns website. I hope to cast on Never Not Knitting's Cedar Leaf Shawlette in this tonight. I planned to knit this for my mother in law for her birthday but it is going to be a bit of a belated present now.
I also can't wait to use this 50% silk/50% merino hand dyed fingering weight yarn from Lush Yarns. the colour is called "Violet Sky" but I couldn't quite capture the richness of the colours in the photograph, I think because of the luminosity of the silk. But take it from me, it is beautiful!
I definitely want to knit myself a shawl out of this. Either Kirsten Kapur's Lavalette(left), Gudrun Johnston's Aestlight Shawl (centre) or YsoldaTeague's Ishbel (right).
Thanks to everyone for tuning into my blog this week! I hope you have found these posts informative or interesting. I haven't had a chance to read everyone else's posts but plan to sit down with a cup of tea tonight and indulge in reading what other knitters have been up to. I'll do a round up over the next couple of days and share some of my favourites with you.
