Another tale of a colorway!

I can finally post these 2 projects now.
Yarn: Malabrigo Rasta
Colorway: Zarzmora

Lots of purple in here.

Zarzamoro Malabrigo Rasta Neckwarmer
Size 17 circulars and some knitting and it later became this neckwarmer. Used every bit of those 90 yds :)  Just like my last Rasta neckwarmer I got the buttons from my LYS.  She has great buttons. (amongst other things ;)

Next up
Yarn: Malabrigo Rasta
Colorway: Zarzmora

Not as much purple, and some greenish/blackish colors too.

It grew up to become...
LTYC Super Bulky cowl
LTYC Super Bulky Cowl
Size 15 circulars and literally had to go down to like size 13's to bind off the last 4 sts or so.  Whew, that was close.

More close ups of the 2nd Zarzamora.
LYTC Bulky Cowl

Seeing them both together like this...
Comparison of the same colorway

If you've ever knit with Malabrigo Rasta, it's sooooo soft and yummy.  Often times the same colorways are somewhat different as it is with hand-dyed yarns.  I have 1 skein of another colorway and not sure what I want to knit.  I know it'll be a neckwarmer of some sort as I wear this one almost every in the mountains of is needed!

They are now in the hands of their new owners :)

Have an exciting weekend coming up.  Can't wait to post about it! It's been a long time coming!

Gorgeous!! The colors remind me of stained glass when knitted up. So pretty.

And I'll bet that nice squishiness helps absorb all the drool one must produce wearing one! LOL!

Malabrigo is always yummy! Very nice neckwarmers. They are timely too. At least around here, the temps finally dropped to 'norms'

Malabrigo bulky sounds to luscious. Love the cowls.
