Well, actually he doesn't. We drive a 30 mile round trip to get packages when they don't come UPS, but my daughter and her husband went to town and brought back 3 packages of yarn and 100 lbs of nectarines.

The specifics of the yarns are on my blog, but I love seeing what yarns are out there so thought I would share the photo here. I like to see what other yarn people are getting. I find it great for ideas (if not so great for the wallet).

Mmmmm... those look lovely! I really want to try malabrigo!

Is the A-maizing the yarn from corn? It looks lovely but I have someone here with a corn allergy so I'm thinking that is probably a no go for me.

Can't wait to see what you make with these!

Yeah, fabulous yarn, but the real questions is this. What the heck does one need 100 lbs of nectarines for? :roflhard:

She is storing up yummy nectar goodies in the freezer :cheering: :cheering:

I am love, loving the malabrigo, just as I thought!
Yes, MB, this is the yarn made from corn! It's soft, with a bit of a cottony feel, but it bounces back and has give where cotton doesn't. I think that i will probably knit a scarf and hat. It will be perfect for our winters since they don't get so cold!
