Is this good for you???

Oh yeah!!! Bring on the Yarn Porn!

Have I mentioned how much I like Malabrigo??? I LOVE Malabrigo. I thought I should have some more. Meet Amoroso, Black, and Velvet Grapes. Hat, Mitts, and Mitts, respectively.

I also needed some Rowan Calmer (in 474 and 478) for my future Shedir and a likely a pair of Natalya gauntlets. I saw a pair knitted in Calmer here and have to have them!!!

The following happened a few weeks ago at the Needle Emporium. Meet Kureyon in 148 (I'm not sure this is the best name for her, but what do I know?), and some of the softest sock yarn ever. Mountain Colours Handpainted Bearfoot in "Juniper". Oh. So. Soft.... right. I'm back.

Then I had an accident at my LYS. Yes, you read that right. An accident.

I went in to exchange something. A few weeks back I bought 4 skeins of Manos in 105 (the reddy browny black one) and I really only need 2. So I went in to trade for 2 skeins of 112 (the browny greeny brown one).

I stopped for just a second at the sadly emptied Noro rack when my enabler stepped in. "Oh wait, before you do that... look at these!!!"

And she ambushed me with several brand new, unopened bags of Kureyon and Silk Garden in BRAND NEW COLOURS I haven't seen anywhere. What was I to do??? The only reasonable thing was to buy these. Kureyon 170, and yes, these colours are true. Wow. I think it may end up being a clapotis scarf. Or something.

Coming soon (I hope), my package from Webs!!!

So here I am, back from the store after listening to le Harlot -- all ready to tell you that I really really hope you are going cause she rocks the house and now I'm hit with yarn porn!! I'm so freaking overstimulated now that I may need to medicate to sleep.

That Noro is absolutely to die for...those are my absolutely favourite colours -- now I must figure out how to dye that!

Have a temps merveilleux a Montreal!

Isn't Kureyon 170 fabulous! I have four skeins, one already knit up as a Lizard Ridge square.

That's some good porn. Oooooh ahhhhhh ohhhhhhh. It is scary how excited I can get over a wee bit of yarn.

Enjoy the Harlot!

Lovely sexy stash additions...makes me want to go out and buy more yarn! I've never knit with Malabrigo and I'm curious; how is it different from Manos and which do you prefer?

I *love* Kureyon 170! My latest Booga bag was made using a skein of it + a skein of Briggs & Little in Grapeseed (?) and it was perfect. L-O-V-E love it!
