First place, yay!
I’m very happy to be first place in our first monthly challenge. I’m still in third place overall but at least now it’s not by so great a margin!
I knitted until my hand fell off, and luckily it paid off!
This yarn was a special skein of Malabrigo sock that I had been saving for almost one year. I bought it when I visited Sudbury with my boyfriend for his sister’s wedding. The shop I purchased it at is call Sweet Yarns and is a great little shop packed full of amazingly luxurious treats such as Handmaiden and Fleece Artist. Definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in the area!
The colourway of this yarn is called “Playa” and it is an amazingly beautiful mix of cobalt blue, silver and bronze. It looked even better knit up than it did in the skein. Emily remarked that it has a metallic appearance to it and I agree 🙂 Love it!!
