Just a bit of Malabrigo p0rn!
First off, just wanted to sing the praises of Malabrigo and Tobias--who happens to be the person I talked to at Malabrigo.
I started a Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravelry and thought it would be fun to have a Malabrigo Cast On Week. To get people to participate I decided to give away a few skeins of Mmmm as prizes (Ravelry members can still join in on the fun!)
I wanted to award more than I could afford so a random thought popped into my head--why don't I ask Malabrigo for donations. They were generous enough to supply us with some preview hanks of their soon-to-be-new Silky Merino!

I wouldn't mind going for a swim in this!
It'll be going towards prizes during our Malabrigo Week (which is happening right now!) as much as I hate to part with such yumminess.

Mmmm. So soft and smooth and beautiful--like Malabrigo could be anything less. I just wish it was all mine!
Hopefully this dose of yarn p0rn will help you get through your day.
i'm a boy knitter. =)

and i blog about it too:
