I figure I should also include the happy news in my early posts, too . . .
I put in a yarn order at Eat.Sleep.Knit, which arrived on the Friday. (I love these folks for stuff my LYS doesn't stock, and shipping has been nice and fast so far!)
Anyway, one of the things that they do is include a scratch-and-win card in every order. So, I won a skein of Malabrigo! They even are nice enough to let you pick the base and colour, so I'm going to get a skein of Malabrigo Sock -- I wanted something where 1 skein was enough for a project.
Even better -- I've yet to use Malabrigo. I've got 2 skeins of Silkpaca that I got at the Toronto Knitters Frolic stashed away, but I haven't had a chance to try any of their other yarn, so this is perfect!
I've got to mail back the filled-out card, which I'll do on Monday when the post office opens. So it's going to be a while before I get my yarn, but that's ok -- I don't mind in the slightest. I can be patient when it comes to free yarn. :)
