A little friend sent me a little sunshine my way. Unbeknown to her she was inspired to send me a special little something just because, little did she know that her package will arrive to me when I needed a little cheering up. Pink rays of sunshine came my way in the form of pretty pink pencils and wonderfully soft Malabrigo Lace Weight.
I have never had the chance to experience this yarn first hand, my oh my, I have been missing out on something grand! I have read over and over on many blogs about Malabrigo but I stayed away thinking that everyone was just overly excited about this yarn. Boy, I was wrong! This yarn deserves raving about! It is soft and luscious....soft enough to make a blanket out of it and sleep nakid under it! Don't worry, I won't share nakid pictures...we'll keep the blog rated PG-13.
Back to the Malabrigo yarn, it is luscious! Stacey already questioned me what I would do with it and guess what her and Cookie provided me with the answer, I am joining Nora and knitting my first shawl: Forest Canopy. I have knitted lace before but I have stayed away from shawls. This yarn though and Nora's lace-along are the perfect pair to get me started in shawl making. Thank you Stacey! Check out the other pictures I took of my beautiful care package.
I know a few of you are going to be jelous (coughJeanniecough) of my new cute pencils. Even my Wonderboy wanted to take them to school....something about a girl name Jenna and his teacher...I stopped him right on his tracks before he stuffed them in his backpack. I can't blame him though...they are super cute!
