Warm Ewe Up Swap - Question #2

If you could only knit or crochet with one brand of yarn for the rest of the year, what would it be and why?

Hmmm. This could go one of two ways. I could pick a solid workhorse yarn, like Cascade 220 or Knitpicks Wool of the Andes or Lamb’s Pride. That would work for a large variety of projects and I’d never run out of projects for my queue. I used Cascade for my big afghan project. See here.

But that eliminates sock yarn, which I enjoy using.

I have fondled... but have never used Malabrigo ( I just ordered some but it hasn’t arrived yet). But from what everyone is saying about it, it seems to be the softest, most luscious yarn around. And it comes in wonderful colors. Moreover, it comes in lace weight and sock weight as well as worsted, so there’s practically no limit to what I could make.

So, in conclusion, I would pick Malabrigo, in spite of never having worked with it!
