My New Lovely
While at my parents last week I went to my favorite yarn shop in the Finger Lakes, Finger Lakes Fibers. It's on the main street of a little town called Watkins Glen, which is located at the southern end of Seneca Lake. This shop has some really beautiful items and I could spend hours looking at everything they've got, but I usually have an impatient Hubs with me so I look for the yarn that my LYS doesn't carry to find something special.
What I found was some lovely Malabrigo Lace. I've heard many a knitter rave over how wonderful this yarn is, and while I can't say anything for the Lace weight (yet!) I do love their worsted weight single ply merino. This is like the worsted weight's little sibling, it has the softest hand I've felt on a wool that isn't a cashmere blend and the dying is to dye for. (Horrible pun intended!)
The color is right up my all with soft sea blues and greens some sandy taupe and drift wood brown. I may be falling in love, and am starting to hatch a plan for my newest little lovely.
