Yarn voyage!

Llama lunch at Machu Pichu

Making Malabrigo


Back in October, Allison took a trip down to South America. She took in the sights, like lunching with a llama at Machu Picchu, but one excursion that might make every knitter’s heart beat a little faster, was to the Malabrigo Mill in Montevideo. More photos on the ImagiKnit flickr stream.

Handmade Souvenirs

Woven Scarf

While Allison was in Uruguay, she also stopped by that grand dame of South American yarn, Manos del Uruguay. While she didn’t tour the facilities, she did stop into the store and picked up some lovely woven and knitted pieces. They are available at the store, to both oogle and buy.
