All of this snow, ice, and bitter cold caused me to think of my lovely Malabrigo yarn and crochet scarf pattern that I won from my blogger friend, Andrea, over at Life On Laffer. This is her very own published pattern. Go Andrea!! I don't know who the heck Diana is.
The Malabrigo yarn is scrumptous. Sooooo soft. I can't imagine that anyone would have problems with it being scratchy. Although people with wool allergy may still have a problem. All of my life, I have been allergic to wool. I couldn't walk by it in the stores even. My eyes would start to burn. My tongue would itch. My throat would threaten to close (just a little). If I touched it, my skin would burn like fire had touched me. That all changed when I started knitting. I told myself--"Self, you are not allergic to wool". I believed myself and now I am knitting with this lovely yarn.
Drink lots of hot chocolate and stay warm!
