Stacking Up Shelves!!!!

This morning saw me unpacking parcels and stacking up shelves....
My long awaited shipment of Malabrigo has arrived and I've already picked a favourite from my 20 new shades.... This gorgeous shade in the 'Worsted' is aptly named 'Apricot' - now isn't that just DIVINE????!!!

So if you're looking for some delicious 'Sock' or 'Worsted' Malabrigo yarn than you can get it from me....
Yes, that's right!!!! I currently have 10 shades of each the 'Worsted' and the 'Sock' yarns, with more arriving soon...

The 'Worsted' is $11.40 per 100g skein which yields 209yards. The 'Sock' is $19.60 per 100g skein and boasts a generous 440yarns.

The Single Ply Hand Dyed incredibly soft Merino used in the 'Worsted' makes it perfect for a cardigan or scarf. The Plied Light Fingering weight Super-wash Merino of the 'Sock' makes it ideal for that gorgeous shawl pattern that you've been itching to make....

I'm now off to cast-on for a gorgeous Cardigan using my favourite scrum-my Apricot Worsted... Thanks for the inspiration this morning when you came to show me the progress you'd made on your version of this cute little number Nara....

    Please dont take offense, but as Aussie to Aussie - please convert to metres and our relevant term.
    While I am learning to work in both, I still prefer our terminology - hard and a very long, long time learnt - they changed in the middle of my high school year :=)
    And just for fun my word verification is ====== botox :-)
