I admit that I've been knitting a lot lately. It's just the perfect, meditative thing to do in the evening after work. I keep my other obsessions for the "brain awake" days of the weekends generally.
I've always been a huge fan of Noro yarns but my latest yarn love has been Malabrigo. I have become especially fond of this new colorway called "Glitter". It contains nearly all of my favorite neutral colors -even including my most favorite mossy green-y/gold-y color. My next project in this colorway will be Cheryl Oberle's Faroese shawl that I will use Malbrigo Rios (machine washable ).
This is their Arroyo line:
Weight: Sport (12 wpi)
Texture: Plied (4)
Yardage/Meters: 335 yards, 306 meters
Skein weight: 100grs, 3.53 ounces

Arroyo is mashine washable, using the gentle cycle with cold water. Dry flat.
In case you're wondering what's on these needles - it's the super cool, super easy, "Hitchiker Scarf" by Martina Behm - available HERE on Ravelry
Tomorrow I begin a workshop with Anne Bagby and Lynn Perella (page down just a bit on this link to see the class I'll be in). I'm just about to head out to a little "meet'n'greet". Our weather, unfortunately, has turned to the more typical, sodden and overcast variety but I hope that the visitors who've traveld from far and wide for the class will still be able to appreciate our island beauty. I've been waiting about a long time for this class to happen - so hang on for some soon-to-be-published photos of the class!
