Spring has to be coming soon, right? Right?! Since the skies over Toronto are still a bit on the grey side, I’ve tried to bring some colors to my knitting. 
My rainbow broken seed stitch socks are coming along. The heel is now finished and I’m decreasing for the gusset. With any luck, they will be finished by the end of the week. 

I also picked up some new yarn this past week. I couldn’t pass up this Malabrigo worsted in this lovely yellow-orange (colorway Sunset). I have never worked with Malabrigo worsted before as it’s a little out of my usual price range for any decent sized project, but I found it on discount at my local yarn store (which is sadly being forced out of its lease), so I decided it was the time to give it a go. It is just so soft and fluffy. I can’t wait to work with it and I have just the pattern in mind – Abalone will make a perfect cardigan for spring and fall.

Here’s to sunnier days ahead and some fun knitting.

  1. You have had such a terrible winter in Ontario. I feel somewhat guilty since BC for the most part missed out on the horrible weather. I love your cheerful rainbow socks!

  2. I love those socks, Brandy… the white is the perfect contrast for the rainbow.
    And the colour of that malabrigo! So cheery… maybe it’ll encourage some spring weather 🙂
    I also got my first Malabrigo this fall (3 skeins of sock)… I haven’t knit with it yet but I think it’ll be my next project. It’s so lovely and soft.

    • If the sock is anything like this worsted, it must be lovely. Perfect for some cozy socks. I’ll keep my eye out for how you like knitting with it – so I can justify picking up some of my own. 😉
