Allison Abroad

Back in October, Allison took off for sunnier shores in the form of Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay. While Rio was gorgeous, Iguazu falls a spectacular natural phenomenon, and dancers tangoed in the streets of Buenos Aires – the yarn highlight was Uruguay. Allison had what some would consider a Yarn Fantasy, she visited Malabrigo HQ. Now there’s a holiday slide show I know you’ll appreciate!

Here she is with Malabrigo owners, Carla, Tobias and Antonio. Do you see all those hanks?

Allison taught a class on knitting in the round.

This photo. I think the look on her face says it all. Looking at a beautiful pile of Malabrigo like that, I don’t know how Allison restrained the urge to dive right into it. Hand Painted Merino Heaven!

We ♥ Our Customers

When I would work in the store, I loved seeing the wonderful hats, scarves and sweaters that our customers would create and if I had helped pick out the yarn, I had the extra thrill of feeling like a knitting midwife. Here are some of the amazing things that people have made and made a return trip for a little show and tell.
