Sleeves are done

The warm weather is here but it's never too early to start thinking fall. Or Christmas gifts. New yarns are going to start arriving very, very soon.

Malabrigo has a new yarn called Mecha. We should have this in the store sometime next week. I ordered this without seeing or touching the yarn but I'm confident that it will be great!
Mecha means single ply in Uruguayan Spanish. Pure Merino Superwash Wool. Aprox. 130 yards (120 m) per skein. 100 grams per skein Needles US 10-11, 6-8 mm Gauge 11 to 13 sts = 4 inches
$18 a skein

877 Queguay

875 Arapey

There should be eight colours in the shipment.

Here are a few pattern ideas from Ravelry
Twenty Eight
Casu Cowl

Mr. Canada Post left a box at the front door this morning with a package from Blue Sky Alpacas. There are new colours of Spud and Chloe Outer and Fine. These have been ordered and should be here at the end of June. Maybe sooner.

It was about 3pm when I finished the second sleeve.
Now I'm back to the front. Beth is going to have dinner ready when I get home from work so I can knit all evening. It looks like I might make it. I hope I like it when it's done. :)
