Pssst- Portlanders!!

Twisted just got a big shipment of Malabrigo yesterday (I should know, I spent my whole shift playing with reskeining and shelving it. Mmmmm what fun.) A lot more colors of the worsted, some lace and Silky Merino, and most excitingly....



Oh my freaking God it is beautiful. (That's Aquarella- they've got Gruesa too, which is similar but semi-solid.)

I don't really know what I'm going to do with it, but it was too pretty to pass up. I wish they would do the worsted in these crazy watercolored colorways.

And some other pictures, just for kicks...


Some handspun, I think it's wool and tussah... The roving was aptly named "Seattle".


Claudia's Handpainted = <3 More details on this one once I finish it.


It is gray and nasty as usual and I'm having a hell of a time getting decent pictures. These aren't bad, but the pictures I'm trying to take for the hat pattern that will be up later today or tomorrow are sort of terrible. They come out dark, and when I fix them they look kind of grainy. I AM USING ALL THE NATURAL LIGHT THIS PLACE HAS TO OFFER. ARRRG. As much as I like the rain.... I think I'm going to move to the southwest one of these days.

  1. Ooh! Ooh! Aquarella! I know what you can do with it. That neck thingy I was wearing when we were teaching classes was Aquarella. Wanna test knit the pattern?

  2. Wait, which one? I thought that was handspun and three colors :-P

    I am wondering if I could get a whole bonnet-y thing out of it without buying another skein...

  3. The main blue part was Aquarella. The pink and white edging bits were scrap bulky weight yarns from other projects.

    I've got 2 skeins of the blue Aquarella left and can't decide if they need to be shipped to my sis with a pattern, given to a favorite test knitter or become a beret thingy for me.
