Yarn in the hand

Even though I haven't been knitting much lately, I'm still horribly tempted by yarn!! If the past six months of mad knitting have taught me anything, it's that the more I love a yarn, the more I love knitting. And if I dislike or am only "meh" about a yarn, it's tough to be movtivated to knit.

So in conclusion: I'll be knitting a lot with Malabrigo and Peace Fleece! I have a skein of Malabrigo worsted merino in Cactus Flower all balled up and ready to go, but I haven't quite decided what to make with it. I bought it with the intention of making mittens, but I'm tempted by some sweet scarf patterns.

See, I love knitting with Malabrigo so much that I'm actually considering buying more to knit small projects for sale (scarves and hats and the like). And as I've posted before, I don't usually sell my knitting since making affordable items means barely getting paid. But I just want to knit with nice yarn, and a girl really CAN have enough hats/scarves/mittens I think I'm willing to sell small things at low prices, just so I can have the fun of knitting with these gorgeous yarns.

Comission me, baby! LMAO.

i agree. it is so much more fun to work on a project if you are excited about the materials.

Giselle says "I love my fingerless gloves so much, they totally rock my new elfin aviator lumberjack chic. I want to commission you to make me more with thinner yarn so I can wear them in all temperatures. Lets talk.
