YPF-MMMM Version

Yahoo! I'm so happy the colder mornings are here! This is MY weather time. Despite living in the South, I do not like the weather here most of the time. Fall is my weather and what a perfect way to celebrate this fall day by showing you what is about to become a new hat for me.

Malabrigo Worsted

Stone Chat Colorway
Destined to become a Bounce Hat by John Brinegar. Ever since I first saw this on his blog (and printed it right away :) I was trying to decide what to use. I almost wanted last weeks pr0n , but decided not to.

Perfect fall colors. This will be perfect to wear at the mountains in October!

Yum...chocolate

What makes me also excited is that I purchased this lovely skein (and it's mate) here in my hometown! Yes, folks, Malabrigo is in my hometown!! Not 1 hr away or many states away, but about 15 minutes depending on the traffic. A Row of Purls is about 45 mins. from me, but the owner has a stall set up in a local antique consignment store.

Now to get off here and cast on! I need a break from Mr. LSJ anyways. Have a great weekend!

I love malabrigo. There's not a yarn like it. I just bought some for a scarf in tiger lily, but man I wished they had this color!

It was love at first sight. I can't wait to see the hat!

I love this - it looks so autumnal!

Bezzie said...

It kind of reminds me of a chocolate covered cherry, which reminds me of Valentines. But that's in February when it's still cold right? ;-)

That is a cool pattern and it's gonna look great in this yarn!
I know the feeling about how far away yarn shops are so that's great news.

I think that hat will be beautiful in this yarn, not to mention how soft it'll be! Can't wait to see it.

I saw that and knew right off it mas Malabrigo. Does that make me a yarn geek? And the faqct that it's origins is so close to you make me jealous as all get out!
