I posted a week or so ago about the list of projects I was planning to cast on, once I had decided which one to start first. Working on my Cria meant that I didn't cast anything on straight away (I was enjoying the surprising burst of motivation for a long-neglected project *laughs*)
Then, a few days later, I mentioned that I had bought some yarn to make a hat for the boyfriend.
Well, my eagerness to try out the Malabrigo I'd bought won out, and I cast on for the hat *grins*
I can see why people rave about this yarn - it is gorgeous. So incredibly soft. I am torn between wanting to work on it exclusively and wanting to take my time to savour the yarn *laughs*
Boyfriend has been stoking his hat in progress (the pattern is Hat fit for a Boyfriend) and is amazed at how luxurious the yarn is *smiles* Nothing but the best for him ;)
I love the depth of the colour, and the subtle variations. It means that it's actually not frustrating making a dark blue hat when I am already making a dark blue cardigan, and dark purple [secret project]!
Having said that, I think all this dark knitting has chosen my next project for me... I shall be casting on for my mum's scarf next. Partly because she is waiting so very patiently but also because the yarn is so wonderfully colourful *grins*
