Here’s how it happened. Earlier this week I needed US 15 DPNs. I thought maybe I could just go to Michael’s and pick them up. So I decided I should get US 13 DPNs at the same time. And then I decided that I should just buy the needles for $5 in Paris also since I am going to knit that at some point.
Michael’s was a bust. They had nothing. I was even considering just buying the Caron Simply Soft that this sweater calls for but their selection was pretty much gone. So I left defeated but I knew I wouldn’t have any free time to make it to my local yarn store to check out their needle selection. I actually started a different project because I had the stuff for it on hand and decided to just wait on the hat that called for the US 15 DPNs.
Then I decided to just order what I needed from WEBS. And since I was already paying for shipping and handling, I decided to treat myself to some yarn that I really didn’t need. And that’s how I wound up with two skeins of Malabrigo Finito.
I first noticed this yarn in my Facebook newsfeed when The Loopy Ewe got it in stock and I was intrigued by the description.
The luxurious Malabrigo Finito comes from the finest Uruguay wool available and only comes to market once a year in limited quantities.
And after knitting up some Malabrigo Chunky for my latest Dolores Park Cowl, I knew I had to take advantage of this once a year opportunity.
I love the feel of this yarn and the colorway I chose, Glitter, isn’t glittery at all but earthy and rich. I wonder what this might become.
