I have heard Malabrigo yarn spoken of on Knitting Help many times. It's always spoken of in a sort of hushed whisper, as if the speaker just wandered off into a faraway place where the ocean breezes are warm and the scent of exotic flowers intoxicate you.....Mmmmmalabrigo.
I have never seen, nor touched Malabrigo. I just found out about a contest where Malabrigo is the prize, two skeins of it! I read about it over at Major Knitter's , who found out from Tracy, at Wool Windings , where I would also have read about it, as they are two experienced knitters who's blogs inspire me every day. Don't you just love the way good news travels through blogland?
The "Celebrate Spring Contest!" is being held at Happy Handwork's blog. I'll admit, I've never been to her blog before today, but I will certainly be going back. I spent at least 15 minutes there once I arrived. She has lots of great knitting, and for this snow-deprived Texan, the many snow pictures were a teasing delight.
If you're a knitter, head on over there and enter her contest. If you aren't a knitter but know someone who is, enter for them (me, me, me). She says,
"If one of your friends enters because of your input you will get one extra entry".
So, if you read it here first, and you do enter, be sure and tell her I sent you! :-)
Ooh, I almost forgot. As part of celebrating spring, Happy Handwork has asked that if we mention the contest on our blog, we also share what one of our favorite flowers is. I believe I've posted this picture previously, but the sight of a Heavenly Blue Morning Glory always makes my heart skip a beat. Though I appreciate well manicured flower gardens, I tend to be drawn to the half hazard style of English Country gardens, lots of color, but not much structure. It probably says something about my personality. ;-Þ
