Yarn Love

Just to prove spinning hasn't taken over, here are some pictures of recent stash acquisitions. The Malabrigo Silky Merino falling down came right after hearing of the recent fire in their headquarters - I felt I had to stash some quickly before a Malabrigo shortage hit the world. (It looks like they are dyeing again now, yay!)

I love these pictures of the Malabrigo Silky - the texture of the yarn, the richness of the colorways. I'm considering Clapotis or another kind of stole that will really highlight the colors (i.e., mostly stockinette, not lacy). Next up is silk lace is from the Sundara Seasons Club. I'm not sure I'd wear this color, but I'm not ready to swap it yet.

And well, maybe spinning has taken over. Because I now have a wheel in my house (lent to me by my knitting mentor), and I purchased these rovings from Crown Mountain Farms (before the current sale, sigh):

I'm seriously drooling here! The Malabrigo is insanely gorgeous.
