The oh-so-irresistible Silky Merino came in on Monday. I have a habit of not showing extreme emotions like rage and excitement... I'm usually really good at keeping them in check. The excitement almost consumed me but I managed to hold it in and in doing so almost passed out from giddiness. I should let it out one of these days. ^_^
Immediately after opening the bag I dumped it out on my bed to feel it. I then proceeded to look at each hank and note the color names. And then I piled it back together and had the strongest desire to jump into it. I, as usual, held back and decided it was time for a photoshoot.
Come over and jump in, the water is silky smooth!
Oh how I wish I could keep it all... just to look at and touch and admire. I really have no idea what I would make with any of it... probably a nice sized swatch to keep in my pocket to fondle and appreciate. Sadly, ... and happily, it'll be going to winners of various contests and things during Malabrigo Cast On Week. It's not too late to join! So, if you want your chance at some of this delicious Silky Merino then Cast On a few projects in Malabrigo worsted and post in the Malabrigo Junkies group.
My mercurial desire to organize, order and inventory lead to this:
Oh yarn... I seriously think yarn is my favorite part of knitting... hmmm.
Well, I need to Cast On a few more Malabrigo projects this week so I'll leave you with a few more pictures.
