honeymoon yarn haul!

yarn shop happiness!

My husband Chris and I honeymooned in Asheville, NC.  It’s a beautiful mountain town with lots of great shopping and dining and sightseeing, and we went right as the leaves were turning colors on the Blue Ridge Parkway (a very scenic drive).

Of course I saw a yarn store and we HAD to go in and buy celebratory yarn:

malabrigo yarn

The yarn winder in the store got clogged with lint so we left before they wound the last ball of the Malabrigo Sock (100% Merino) in colorway 121 Marte.  The bright yarn to the right is Malabrigo Rios (a worsted yarn that’s also 100% Merino) in colorway 850 Archangel.  Below that is more Rios in colorway 043 Plomo.

Malabrigo yarn is great, and I don’t get a chance to buy it in person very often, so I was very happy to find this store!  I have plans for the worsted already but the sock was an impulse buy.  Fortunately I’ve already made a Christmas gift out of it (which I can’t share yet) and am also working on a cowl with the leftovers.

The yarn shop also had Mirasol Yarns, and I REALLY wanted to buy some Nuna and Llama Una, but I figured I’d spent enough on the 9 Malabrigo skeins, so I’ll save those for another time (but by golly were they SUPER DUPER soft)!

Well, that’s all for today, I’ll show more about what these yarns turn into soon. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Let me know if you’ve tried Malabrigo before, and what you think!
