check out the goods.

December 23rd shall now be known as the day of the LYS.

for christmas, due to an apparent lack of good presents for me my mother and i journeyed to knitwits. a lovely yarn store where i managed to spend $143 in a matter of 20 minutes. now, most knitters will attest that this is a simple task. and yes, i must agree that with malabrigo at your fingertips and cold best friends with christmas around the corner, or you know, dangling right in front of your nose, it is indeed easy.

So i did. and check out what i got:

this is the whole shebang. now the breakdown:

Malabrigo Rasta in Azules

Malabrigo Rasta in Solis

Misti Alpaca Chunky (I still can’t figure out how to flip the images)

Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande

Malabrigo Silky Merino in Dill

Malabrigo Silky Merino in Nocturnal

and finally, just because it was the most gorgeous skein of navy blue (the picture doesn’t do this colorway justice at all.) some Malabrigo Sock in Cote d’Azure for me. the others are for my chilly best friends who call me an old granny but secretly appreciate my knitting skills.

And then came christmas.

So other than a slew of WEBS and Knitwits giftcards to further my yarn addiction I now own every single book that Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (aka the Yarn Harlot) ever wrote. have I ever said how freaking hilarious she is? but anywho I also was able to convince my mother to supply my Effortless Cardigan (pattern by Hannah Fettig). Five skeins of madelinetosh dk in gossamer. I already started 😉

merry christmas to all! i hope yarn-santa was good to you.
