Yarn Rave

I would like to take this moment to rave about Malabrigo worsted weight yarn. I started Foliage from the Fall Knitty with a skein that I had received in a yarn swap--a beautiful skein dyed lovely shades of red ("Amoroso" was the color).

I have to say that I'm in love with this yarn. It's kettle-dyed pure merino wool from Uruguay, and it is so soft. Normally, wool makes me itchy, but this yarn is squishy and soft and wonderful. I want to knit a whole sweater out of it. I want to buy lots of it for presents. It's such a great yarn, and I'm going to adore my hat when it's done.

Yay for awesome yarn!
