I should really unsubscribe from almost all mailing lists I’m on, but especially the newsletters from yarn stores and digital scrapbooking stores. Double especially from yarn stores, in fact. A little over a week ago Blazing Needles sent out an e-mail saying that they were having a Malabrigo Madness event. Meaning that they had gotten a shipment of Malabrigo Yarns and they would graciously allow us to give them money for it.
I was going to stay away. I was. I have 2 skeins that were a gift to me back when they were selling as HandPaintedYarn.com. They are gorgeous, soft, and have been waiting for the right project for a few years. Not only that, but I have 2 skeins of the laceweight that have just started becoming an Aeolian shawl.
I think I’ve established that I didn’t “need” any new Malabrigo, per se. But I wanted to just… you know.. see it. Maybe touch a little.
You’re afraid for me, just reading this, aren’t you?
Calm yourself, I was a good girl. One and only one skein, purchased with a specific project in mind. Here it is, already on it’s way to becoming 198 Yards of Heaven.
