At the beginning of the year there was a design contest in the Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravelry. A design contest for my all-time favourite yarn? Who was I to resist? The contest asked for designs that use no more than two skeins of yarn, no matter which of the currently available bases by Malabrigo Yarn and the hardest choice was to decide which yarn to use…
In the end I went with Malabrigo Arroyo (the Spanish word for ‘stream’) in the colourway ‘Aguas’ (Spanish for ‘waters’) – and the moment I had picked my yarn I not only knew the stitch pattern for my design but also the name for it. So here’s ‘Flowing’
And guess what happened? My design made third place in the contest. Woo Hoo! So happy! Really excited that my design was chosen and also, there’s a prize that makes me drool: My choice of 450g of wonderful Malabrigo yarn, what a treat!! It was so hard to pick from all the terrific bases and colourways – but I couldn’t be happier with what I chose and received in today’s mail:
Malabrigo Arroyo in ‘English Rose’, ‘Plomo’ and ‘Lotus’, two skeins of Silky Merino in ‘Mares’ and a skein of oh-so-soft Finito in colourway ‘Dewberry. I love all of them – a huge thank you to Malabrigo Yarns for such a terrific prize! Now, what to make first?
P.S. ‘Flowing’ is currently being test knit and the pattern will be available for download in a couple of weeks.
