I'm in love

...with this colorway. Emerald Blue from Malabrigo/Handpainted Yarns. I'm knitting this incredibly boring thing (bag, loosely based on booga -- the bottom is LP worsted) but I'm absolutely enthralled because I love the yarn so much. It's breathtaking. And I'm not generally a fan of variegated colorways -- or I should say, I usually love them on the hank, not so much when they're knitted up.



I think it'll be gorgeous when it's felted...hopefully this afternoon. I'm about halfway through the i-cord bind-off, which BTW, totally rocks.
