I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup

The first Malabrigo of the cold season — there’s nothing like it. I jumped the gun a little bit, starting this at the crack of September long before there was a hint of chill in the air. But after a long summer of lightweight yarns and plant fibers, the fingers itch for wool’s resiliency, give, tug, entangling, stretch, bounce, smoosh, loft.

And what better way to limber up for a long winter of knitting than an infinity scarf. I’ve admired the way they hang on the models and the Ravelry photos for quite a while. This was class and meeting knitting; it needed to be simple, so I reluctantly put aside the patterns that required frequent changes or attention to detail or counting. My yarn was a pink and red blend (difficult to photograph), so a slip-stitch pattern to keep the colors pixelated was a natural choice.

I keep thinking this yarn isn’t my color. The pink, you know. But boy, is it tough to let go of something this indulgent, warm and wearable. Whoever buys it at the Craftin’ for CASA sale may have to remove it from me by force.

The perfect blend of style, function, and glorious hand-dyed natural fibers. This is why we knit.
